This course will focus on typical and atypical developmental milestones of physical, cognitive, language, and social/emotional development of preschool and early elementary children (age 3 to 8) from diverse backgrounds and observation of children in early education settings. Theories of child development and contributions of theorists are reviewed in the context of application to developmental milestones. The effects that multiple interrelated environmental factors have on the growth and development of the child will be explored.
