Learning outcomes

Main goal of the course is to introduce the students to the principles of child development, as well as to supply them with tools to learn about development of cognitive, emotional and social functions. That represents the theoretical background necessary to learn about main issues related to Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Intellectul Disability. Aims of the course are: neurobiological foundations of central nervous system development; its relationship of the onset of motor, cognitive, social and emotional functions; developmental trajectories from birth to school-age. The role and influences of enviromental (including familiar) elements during the process of function maturiation and competence acquisition. Developmental features of children during the first year of life, the pre-school and school-age will be outlined. Major neurodevelopmental disorders will be described, outlining the main clinical features, the diagnostic approaches and the differential treatments available.
