If you work with children with developmental disorders in education, health, psychology or social services or even if you’re a parent with appropriate qualifications, this programme will give you an insight into these complex disorders and how to support the children who have them.
You’ll focus on four major development disorders in children: Dyslexia, Developmental Coordination Disorder (often known as Dyspraxia), Attention Deficit Disorder and Autistic Spectrum Disorder. You’ll consider the evidence regarding the nature, diagnosis, assessment and intervention of each disorder – including the controversies that surround them – guided by leading researchers in the field.
We don’t promote any particular method of assessment or management. Instead, we look at the available evidence in education, health or the home, and allow you to focus on the models that relate to your own context.
