Students examine the terms growth and development through the study of developmental sequence from conception to the end of the middle age years. The cognitive, physical, social and emotional aspects of development are addressed. The biopsychosocial and spiritual factors to promote the health and well-being of people with developmental disabilities across the lifespan are discussed.
