Certificate Program on 'Special Needs Conditions & their Challenges'

Description

When children grow and develop at their own pace, there is a normal range in which children reach developmental milestones. Failure to reach these milestones is an indication of a delay in the development and is considered as the “red flag or at-risk signs.’

Ever wondered what would happen if these red flags are ignored or missed?

This module is to give an idea of what would happen if the red flag signs are not addressed. If no early interventions are provided based on the red flags signs, it may lead to the development of a disability or disorder that affects a child’s holistic development throughout his/her life span.

This module will throw light on the various types of disabilities and special needs conditions that affect a child’s growth and development. It will also give an overview of unique challenges faced by Children with Special Needs and highlight the importance of Early Identification and Intervention Formulation. Tools, techniques and appropriate interventions to support children with specific conditions will also be discussed.
