An accredited Social Sciences module. 

Course Code

CLL 22/23_Acc_119
Course Description

This module takes a developmental approach to common disorders of language and learning. By outlining the course of typical cognitive development, the learning differences associated with dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD, developmental coordination disorder and autism will be set in context. The impact of these disorders both on children’s ability to access learning at school and on their socio-emotional well-being will be explored, alongside issues of identification, diagnosis and labelling. Students will be encouraged to debate difficult issues surrounding terminology, treatment programmes and stereotyping.
