The majority of brain growth and development occurs in the last stage of gestation and the first three years of life. What is achieved during this critical window of opportunity largely influences our intellectual, emotional, cognitive, sensory processing and motor control skills and abilities as adults. Essential to brain function, particularly during growth is the
