EDUC& 115 Child Development (5)

The purpose of this course is to provide the student with an overview of the study of child development, including those children who are culturally, linguistically, and ability diverse. The scientific and theoretical approaches to studying the development of the physical, cognitive, communication, social, and emotional changes that occur from conception through adolescence and the biological and/or environmental influences that affect this development will be addressed. Materials and resources regarding communication with families, brain development, and milestones for each stage of development will also be provided. Four field observations within inclusive child care settings are required outside of class time.

Prerequisite: PSYC& 100.
