CS 625 - Neurological Development

The purpose of this course is to enhance the awareness of the student to sensory motor development and neuro-behavioral organization during infancy/toddler and early childhood. Implications for learning, memory, neurological disorders, assessment and program planning will be considered. Opportunities to practice competencies in field experiences would include: the concept of role release in the transdisciplinary model, modeling, demonstrations, coaching and feedback. The use of instructional technology and the provision of assistive technology as vehicles for more effectively serving children and families will be considered. Students will learn to consider chronological age appropriateness and developmentally appropriate practices for infant/toddlers and young children when selecting types of assistive technology in assessment and intervention.

3 credits. Spring.
This course requires ten hours of fieldwork.
