ABEC212: Difference and Disability in Early Development
This unit is designed to build on principles of child development and developmental processes. How these processes are affected by identified at risk factors, and result in disability and/or difference, are investigated with reference to current research and theory. The role of the community in enriching the learning potential of young children is emphasised. Research on the importance of community empowerment and the implications of this for professional roles in all early childhood programs is evaluated. Particular implications for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are discussed.
