About

If you work with children with developmental disorders in education, health, psychology or social services or even if you’re a parent with appropriate qualifications, this Provision for Children with Developmental Disorders programme at University of Leeds will give you an insight into these complex disorders and how to support the children who have them.

Overview

You’ll focus on four major development disorders in children: Dyslexia, Developmental Coordination Disorder (often known as Dyspraxia), Attention Deficit Disorder and Autistic Spectrum Disorder. You’ll consider the evidence regarding the nature, diagnosis, assessment and intervention of each disorder – including the controversies that surround them – guided by leading researchers in the field.

We don’t promote any particular method of assessment or management. Instead, we look at the available evidence in education, health or the home, and allow you to focus on the models that relate to your own context.

Careers

This Provision for Children with Developmental Disorders programme at University of Leeds enables people within a range of professions such as health, education and social services to progress within their chosen professional field. This programme could improve your career prospects if you intend to work with children with Special Educational Needs in any context.

Many of our students choose to build on the knowledge and skills gained through the PGCert by progressing to the MA Special Educational Needs, which may be even more beneficial to your career. You can carry the credits you’ve gained on the PGCert forward to the MA programme.
