Dallas study shows benefits of early childhood education

Fort Worth Star-Telegram

High-quality preschool programs can help children from low-income communities be more successful in elementary school, initial results from a study show.
Researchers found that students in the Dallas school district who had received services from certain early childhood education programs outperformed their classmates from similar backgrounds, officials said.

“What it told us was that first- and second-graders were not only on task but exceeded the average in math and reading. That was critical to us because we know that just because they’re poor doesn’t mean they can’t learn,” said Merriott Terry, president and chief executive officer of Educational First Steps, a Dallas nonprofit organization that sponsored the study.

The study was conducted by the University of Texas at Dallas, and more complete results are expected next month.


The study looked at students in kindergarten through second grade who had attended preschool centers affiliated with Educational First Steps.

An analysis of data showed that those students scored higher on standardized tests in reading and math than their peers, said Richard Scotch, professor of sociology and public policy at UT-Dallas.

Educational First Steps supports early childhood education for disadvantaged children up to age 5.

The group works with about 70 Dallas-area child-care centers to improve educational programs by providing one-on-one mentoring and training to teachers, supplying learning tools and materials, and giving teacher scholarships for certificates and degrees in early childhood education.


The impact of high-quality early education, particularly for lower-income children, will be a key topic Friday at the Early Education Summit at the World Trade Center in Dallas. The event is expected to draw more than 150 community leaders, elected officials and child-care administrators.

On Saturday, nearly 350 area caregivers and early education providers will meet for a daylong conference at the trade center. Registration is closed for the summit.

Be Smart Kids curriculum software has proven to be very effective in helping young children develop strong minds. After 18 months of immersion in Be Smart Kids, students have scored in the upper echelons of national standardized testing. They have demonstrated reading and math scores as much as three grade levels above their peers.

The genius of Be Smart Kids is its focus on introducing the learning process during the best learning time in a child’s life: birth to age 6. This is a once-in-a-lifetime window of learning opportunity that once closed, is
lost forever.

Be Smart Kids is a comprehensive, instructional program that combines scientific methodology, state-of-the-art technology, and best teaching practices. More than a decade of research and design has gone into the development of the Be Smart Kids Learning System. This unequaled computer-aided
learning process stimulates every area of the brain during the period when the “window of opportunity” for learning is best; from birth to six years.

Be Smart Kids meets and exceeds State and Federal Early Childhood Education Standards. Click on one of the links below for a full listing.

Be Smart Kids teaches children when scientific research has proven they learn best!

Maximum Brain Stimulation Diagram

When the brain’s neurons fire often enough, a permanent connection is formed. That’s what scientists call “hard-wiring the brain”. The more connections become permanent, the more work the brain can do. But the window of opportunity is brief.

Overcoming Autism – A Case Study

Most early brain development disorders now come under an umbrella called Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  One in every 68 children is said to have some form of it.  These disorders are more prevalent in boys (1 in 44).

It is critical that the parent/teacher begins an intervention program with these children immediately.  The earlier you begin the more success you will have.  Too often parents send so much time with doctors and tests that this incredible “window of opportunity” to take corrective measures is missed.


How do children learn?  Scientist and educators tells us how children learn and process information for the rest of their lives depends on how we stimulate their brains in the early years, ages 0- 5.     When we stimulate the brain of the young child and the neurons fire often enough, a permanent connection is formed. Connections used regularly become stronger and more complex.  Connections not used are pruned away. The brain is built on a “use it or lose it” basis especially in the early years.  The more connections, the more work the brain can do.  It is called hard-wiring the brain.  These early years are the greatest learning potential of a person’s life and  the foundation of all future learning.

Case Study

Over the last 20 years, we have taught children who  had various degrees of Autism at the Be Smart Kids Center. They were not drilled.  They only received the lesson once a week for 30 minutes.    I remember one case in which I am extremely proud.   He had just turned 3 when he came to me in 1998.    I always say that he taught me more than I taught him.  He had no speech except for whining, had glazed over eyes with no interaction to any other person, walked on his tiptoes bringing his feet up very high when he walked, and did a lot of flapping with his arms. He would sometimes put his hands over his ears and scream. I would think time and again that he would not be able to accomplish something but I kept going.  He proved me wrong in every instance.  This child graduated number one in his high school and is now attending college.

The same process that I used is available to you.  The Be Smart Kids Learning Process has instructions and tutorials for each weekly lesson.  It is important that you do the computer-based product because the interaction between the computer, adult, and child will produce the best results.

Be Smart Kids is Starting Education Early and Sees Benefits

Start Early – Stay Ahead!

The key to smart children is starting education early. Our process begins as early as 12 to 18 months. Whether you begin at age 18 months or 4 years, it is important to begin early.

Be Smart Kids produces the necessary tools that wire the brain of a young child during the early years when the window of opportunity for learning is greatest, 0-6 years. Most early learning software produced will not give a child the necessary tools to maximize this early learning potential. To build lifelong learning skills, young minds need so much more that ABC’s and 123’s.

Be Smart Kids teaches more than ABC’s and 123’s. We give children lifelong learning skills. BSK teaches children How to Learn .

Be Smart Kids educators merged science, technology and best teaching practices to build a unique process that addresses the window of opportunity for learning during the early years.


Be Smart Kids software has proven to be effective in helping young children develop strong minds. Students who have used Be Smart Kids have tested in the 99th National Percentile and have reading and math scores as much as 3 grade levels above their peers.

What is the difference between Be Smart Kids and other early learning software?

The difference is Be Smart Kids’ Unique Methodology, built right into the software. Our fun, learning, interactive exercises are strategically placed in lesson plans that build one concept on top of another. This allows for the child to build math and reading skills through a natural progression.

Our learning exercises use the Four Senses: Sight, Sound, Voice, and Touch , to stimulate the young mind. The child Sees the symbols, Hears the sounds, Says the sounds and reinforces through Touch.

Brain Development 101

Stages of Critical Brain Development

Birth to 6 months old
Brain growth is unmatched during the first six months of life. The most critical windows during this stage are vision, vocabulary, and emotional development. Because the windows for vision and emotions shut so early, it is important to pay attention to them during this stage.
6 to 12 months old
With connections primarily established for sight, the critical windows during this stage are speech and emotional development. The foundations for governing emotions are established. Language capacity grows tremendously during this period, and this is a good time to introduce the natural sounds of other languages.
12 to 18 months old12 to 18 months old
Most of the critical windows of human brain development are open during this stage. At no other time is the brain so receptive and responsive. Many of the neurological connections that govern a lifetime of skill and potential are beginning to take shape.
18 to 24 months old18 to 24 months old
Children in this stage are gaining more control of their bodies, and their motor skills are developing. They are becoming more aware of other people’s feelings and beginning to learn to share. Language and vocabulary remain important. Attention should be given to math and logic as well.
2 to 3 years old2 to 3 years old
By the age of three, much of a child’s brain growth and density is complete. The brain patterns that will guide a child’s development are already well established. The critical windows for some skills such as speech begin to close, so vocabulary building is important. Brain patterns for music begin to develop at the end of this stage.
3 to 5 years old3 to 5 years old
Between the ages of three and five, most of the remaining critical windows in a child’s brain development begin to close. There appears to be a connection between the brain patterns stimulated by music and the part of the brain used to understand spatial concepts in math. The brain patterns created while learning a musical instrument between ages 3 and 10 are hard-wired for life.

NEWSHOUR-Child’s Play
Lee Hochberg of Oregon Public Television reports Recent scientific studies have found that the human brain does much of its development in a child’s first three years of life.

At birth, almost all the neurons that the brain will ever have are present…By the age of 2 years old, the brain is about 80% of the adult size.
