This lecture course introduces the student to human development throughout the lifespan, from prenatal development to the senior adult. The student has the opportunity to learn the relationship of the areas of the developmental process. Although focused on development from neonatal through early childhood, the student will be introduced to the changes that occur in aging throughout life. Emphasis is placed on prenatal development, the developmental sequence, and developmental disabilities. The student will also discover the impact that age-related disease processes or disabilities can have on individuals and/or their families at any point along the developmental continuum.
