An exploration of the causes, impact, and cure of what CCFC’s Diane Levin calls “Problem Solving Deficit Disorder”; the condition in which children are no longer active agents of their involvement with the world. Beginning in infancy, children are bombarded with noise and electronic stimulation. This interferes with their ability to engage in play that promotes optimal development, learning, social skills, and conflict resolution.
