This one year Psychology with Developmental Disorders course provides an excellent stepping stone into degree study and is ideal if you’e looking to gradually develop your knowledge and skills to further progress onto our BSc (Hons) Psychology with Developmental Disorders degree.
This Psychology with Developmental Disorders course provides the opportunity to combine the study of key aspects of Psychology with exploration of a range of developmental disorders such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and autism. This course is designed to foster a clear understanding of evidence based practice alongside opportunities to complete placement activity in educational settings. You will focus on the assessment and aetiology of disorders such as dyslexia and covering areas which include multi-agency working and safeguarding children and young people.
The emphasis of your studies is very much about developing key transferable skills and knowledge that will not only provide you with a recognised qualification but prepare you for further study, leading you directly onto Year Two of the BSc (Hons) Psychology with Developmental Disorders degree course. There is also an element of personal development built into the course which aims to further develop study skills specific to psychology and help you grow in confidence throughout your studies as you build your very own reflective skills portfolio.
