This MSc combines theoretical grounding in development and its disorders with practical training in clinical assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. You will focus on dyslexia, developmental language disorder, autism, ADHD, and dyscalculia.

Combining perspectives from developmental and cognitive psychology, developmental cognitive neuroscience, and applied clinical and educational practice, you'll look at topical issues such as co-morbidity between disorders, and the implications of cognitive disorders for children’s mental health.
