Students will be encouraged to explore critically the policy context in support of early intervention for this client group and the evidence base for it. There will be a particular focus on the early years of life.
Students will develop an understanding of what makes these years critical to later development through consideration of risk and protective factors in social, psychological and physical domains.
Students will be familiar with the core developmental and clinical models of early years and early interventions and will be able to critically evaluate their conceptual and empirical basis.
This course is delivered entirely online over 10 weekly sessions. This course is not available in academic session 2013/14.
