“These are exciting times in the areas of prenatal and early infant neurodevelopment. As a pediatrician, I am fascinated by the emerging science that supports the idea that we can positively impact a child’s development as early as mid-pregnancy. As a mother, I am amazed that something as safe and easy to use as BabyPlus can enhance the prenatal environment in the manner it does, helping our infants begin to respond and adjust to the complex sensory world we live in.”

Gary Meunier is currently an emeritus professor of psychology at Ball State University and has also served as a clinical professor of psychology in the Department of Psychiatry, Indiana University School of Medicine. He is now retired but was the founder and director of a private practice (Diagnostics, Inc) which focused on the assessment of adults and children for courts, medical providers, industry, and governmental agencies. In additon, he was board certified in forensic assessment by the Board of Forensic Examiners. Most importantly of all, Gary is the grandfather of two BabyPlus girls, now ages 8 and 10, both of whom have had markedly strong learning skills from an early age. He collected scientifically accurate measures of their progress and milestones during the corresponding early developmental years and established they were advanced beyond expectations for mental development while their physical development was exactly within the normal expectations. As a clinician, he has directly quantified the many beneficial effects of the BabyPlus prenatal curriculum.
