“Montessori program helps dementia” on the local news in Grand Rapids

Thanks to Montessori Madmen for this: Montessori program helps dementia | WZZM13. It’s a 2 minute piece on the local news about a Montessori inspired program for demential patients.  There’s not a lot of Montessori visible in the piece, and the newscaster gets several things wrong, including calling it “Montezorri.”  No materials are seen or mentioned. But two things stand out.  One, she says “uses the Montessori techniques like you might have heard of them.  And two, the pieces of Montessori that come through are giving the patients choice, and the adult fostering independence.  Which are good ideas to have out there.
