“Earning the Right: the Story of INREAL.”
This video recounts how educators at CU helped spark a revolution in early childhood education focused on speech and language. CU’s “INREAL” training program was instrumental in breaking out of the confines of the behavior-modification regimens of the 1960s and into a more child-centered, observation-based, humane teaching program. This video captures the origins of INREAL through interviews with its founders, and examines how the method has matured into a multi-disciplinary approach to educating young children and training educators at CU’s Child Learning Center.
