Child development

Watch a short animation on child development and how this process can be disrupted for some children.

Before we begin to think about developmental disability, we are first going to learn about the importance of child development.

In the animation above, we follow two children, as we learn more about development across different domains and consider how this process can be disrupted for some children.

In the next step, our Lead Educator Professor Hannah Kuper will discuss this topic in more detail.

Remember, you can use the comments section below to provide feedback on each step, and share your perspectives and experiences with other learners.
