Deborah Carlisle Solomon is a leading expert in the development and care of infants and toddlers.
Author of the book Baby Knows Best: Raising a Confident and Resourceful Child the RIE® Way, Deborah discovered RIE® soon after her son was born. She was so deeply moved by founder Magda Gerber’s Educaring® Approach that she decided to change careers to study infant and toddler development, which she did at RIE and at the Pikler Institute in Budapest, Hungary.
Deborah spent eight years serving as the Executive Director of Resources for Infant Educarers® (RIE®), a non-profit world-wide membership organization dedicated to improving the quality of infant care and education. She now has an international private practice teaching, speaking, and consulting with parents, therapists, child care providers, and corporations. Deborah has been invited to speak at various national and international infancy and early childhood conferences and workshops.
She resides in Los Angeles with her husband and son.
