When the Bough Breaks is a 43 minute documentary that addresses the state of literacy in South Carolina, reporting on the continuum of literacy in the life of a child and the consequences of not placing a focus on the language development and reading skills of children. Pediatricians, reading teachers and interventionists outline their strategies in teaching infants and early school age children how to master reading skills at much earlier ages. Dr. David Walsh, Jr., a nationally renowned psychologist and author, introduces the film with his findings on brain development through advances in neuroscience that prove the value of early childhood initiatives.
