Sensory Disability: Child Development and Family Perceptions - SPED936

This unit examines the influence sensory disability (hearing and/or vision impairment) can have on child development and family perceptions of child progress and competency. The rationale for early intervention through family-centred practice is discussed and characteristics of effective parent-professional partnership and collaboration explored. Students will consider family systems, cultural diversity, and the role of parent education and guidance as a basis for promoting optimal outcomes for children with a sensory disability.
