According to their website, Pikler/Lóczy USA (PLUSA), “promotes respectful and harmonious relationships between the youngest child and the adult. Inspired by the Pikler® Approach, our mission is to support the adult through service, training, and research in the USA and internationally. Our focus preserves the competence, autonomy, and integrity of the young child, as formulated, studied and practiced by Hungarian pediatrician Emmi Pikler, M.D. (1902-1984), in order to ensure the child’s well being in families and in group settings.”1
PLUSA’s role is to support those interested in implementing Dr. Pikler’s respectful approach to caring for children.
