PSY 395-02 - Special Topic: Atypical Development

4 credits (Fall)
This course will cover research on situations in which children develop atypically. We will read empirical research on development disorders such as autism and Down syndrome, and discuss the etiology of such disorders, as well as cognitive, social, and linguistic outcomes. We will also discuss atypical development resulting from impoverished environments, and read how children’s development is affected in the short and long term by such influences.

Prerequisite: Two 200-level psychology courses.
Instructor: E. Kelty-Stephen
