Topic:

How often we wonder why some students can achieve milestones while others struggle to keep up, and if these differences are part of typical development or indicators of more significant challenges? Understanding child development can be an extremely powerful and helpful lens for teachers. In this session, we will present child developmental along a continuum, from typically developing children to those with developmental challenges in behavior or learning. Some behavioral and learning issues that are outside the pattern of typical development will be explored and we will discuss the developmental tasks usually mastered at particular ages and phases.
