Prerequisite: CFS 130 or GSTR 210 or permission of instructor

This course will examine typical and atypical variations in children’s development. Students will explore variations in all major areas of development (physical, sensory, cognitive, communicative, social, emotional and adaptive development). What constitutes atypical variation and leads to diagnosis of developmental delay and/or disability will be closely examined. Attention is devoted to the role of both individual and the environment in creating variations in development. Legal and ethical guidelines, IEP and IFSP development, intervention resources and strategies, and interdisciplinary service models are considered.
