This course is designed to introduce the student to the rich variety of typical and atypical growth and developmental patterns in infants, children and youth who may or may not be an English learner. Concepts will be presented through a developmental domain perspective. Disabling conditions and risk factors will be presented in relationship to environment and neurodevelopment. Students will identify these conditions and have a sense of how they may impact development and learning. Students will have the opportunity to compare and contrast developmental scales and compare a child with and without disabilities, and at risk populations (including an English learner) to those scales.
