Normalisation

The process of natural development revealing a child’s true personality in the first plane. To provide a prepared environment that removes any defects of character. Normalization occurs when a child’s fundamental developmental needs are met at the right time and in the best manner.

“The so called bad qualities, together with the good and the superior, all vanish and there remains only one kind of child. He has none of those qualities.” The Absorbent Mind p. 183

“ Normalisation comes about through ‘concentration’ on a piece of work. For this we must provide ‘motives for activity’ so well adapted to the child’s interests that they provoke his deep attention” – The absorbent mind p. 188
