KidCareCanada Society is currently putting the finishing touches on a new video, called Born to Communicate. It features the work of Dr. Janet Werker an international leader in the field of language development in infants and children. Filming took place in Dr. Werkers newborn lab at BC Womens Hospital and in the Infant Studies Centre at the University of British Columbia.
