This one credit course will introduce students to the field of developmental disabilities (DD). The broad range of DD diagnoses will be explored (e.g., autism, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, epilepsy etc.), and relevant support and service systems will be examined. Students will be introduced to the theoretical concepts of person-centered planning, self-advocacy, family support and the contemporary guiding principles of independence, productivity, inclusion, self-determination and integration.
