Over the two modules you will study the concept of developmental disabilities exploring the historical context and the international picture. Terminology and labels are addressed with examples discussed from education and health, together with methods of classification, identification and definition. Key concepts such as uneven child profiles and discrepancy criteria are analysed together with controversies that exist in the field. Four developmental disabilities are being addressed as a whole with Dyslexia and Developmental Coordination forming the basis of the first module. The second module examines attention deficit disorder and autistic spectrum disorder within the framework and concept of developmental disorders.
