Child Development and Developmental Therapies applies the field of child development to the practice of therapeutic working with children. Developmental therapies encompasses a range of therapeutic interventions for children (and their families) with developmental issues such as social-emotional, language or behavioural problems and includes interventions such as speech and language therapy, art therapy, and play therapy.
This innovative and multi-disciplinary degree is comprised of three core academic pathways: child development and therapeutic application; assessment and quantitative skills; and therapeutic working with children and families. Work experience is built into the curriculum to enable students to gain valuable practical experiences in working with children with developmental issues and their families.
The course is designed to develop graduates who have the academic knowledge, numerical confidence and scientific and clinical skills to work in a range of helping related organisations and roles and/or to progress to appropriate therapeutic postgraduate training programmes.
The degree has excellent links with the NHS, other helping organisations and professionals allowing students to benefit from in-class contact with practitioners and access to work experience.
