Kathy Kitts founded and is the Executive Director of NeuGrowth. She graduated from University of Maryland with a degree in Behavioral and Social Sciences, and Microbiology, where she received a semester’s worth of credit for her unique brain program work with children birth to age six.  This body of work included 15 years of creating and implementing programs of stimulation for children of this age group.At the IAHP Ms. Kitts began her studies of how the brain develops, takes in new information, stores it and recalls it. This includes the many ways the brain takes in information:  physically, visually, aurally, through smell, taste, and through the kinesthetic sense and the tactile sense (touch), and through two internal senses.  At IAHP, Ms. Kitts became familiar with how the brain directs the output, and how the brain can recover from many types of injuries, depending on the circumstances.While continuing her studies of the brain independently, Ms. Kitts raised her first son, Ryan, who was 8 months old when she finished her first course in Philly.  She was so impressed with what she saw there—the incredible abilities of so many very young children, that she and her husband set up an individualized program of brain stimulation for Ryan, and experimented with it.The first six years the length of a lesson was 5 minutes.  She may have  3 “lessons” spread throughout the entire day. This was tucked in between the walks to the park, in the neighborhood and to the zoo, visits to the grocery store and nature centers, time spent with relatives and other visitors, and travel to all sorts of places in the DC-metro area, New York City, etc.
