As a scientist she took particular care to observe children to understand their development and then took up and improved material that had already been developed by Jean Itard and Edouard Séguin.

The material which initially isolates a characteristic (height, weight, colour, width, temperature, etc.) enables the child to appropriate a concept and the associated vocabulary.
