Understanding the science behind things helps you communicate better to your clients the reasons WHY sleep is so important to infant brain development, why a preemie must be watched closely for signs of illnesses common to them and possible issues such as Reactive Attachment Disorder.

This course looks intensively into things such as infant brain development, working with premature infants, working with higher order multiples, what high-profile and high net worth clients are really looking for, business and how fast it is changing and how you as an NCS you can keep up and much, much more.
