About Provision for Children with Developmental Disorders at School of Education, University of Leeds

If you work with children with developmental disorders in education, health, psychology or social services or even if you’re a parent with appropriate qualifications, this programme will give you an insight into these complex disorders and how to support the children who have them.

You’ll focus on four major development disorders in children: Dyslexia, Developmental Coordination Disorder (often known as Dyspraxia), Attention Deficit Disorder and Autistic Spectrum Disorder. You’ll consider the evidence regarding the nature, diagnosis, assessment and intervention of each disorder – including the controversies that surround them – guided by leading researchers in the field.

We don’t promote any particular method of assessment or management. Instead, we look at the available evidence in education, health or the home, and allow you to focus on the models that relate to your own context.

Course suspended

Unfortunately, in response to covid-19, this course will be suspended for the academic year 2020/21. If you have an offer for this course, you’ll receive an email about alternative courses you may want to consider. If you’re a new applicant to the University, you can search for alternative courses starting in the academic year 2020/21.

Research insight

You’ll be taught by members of the Childhood, Education and Social Justice research centre, who have a long-established, international reputation for research in developmental disorders. The course distils the expertise within the team and draws on research that we have conducted, funded by agencies such as the ESRC, Action Medical Research, and private and charitable UK organisations that work with children with these disorders.

We offer students a vibrant intellectual and academic experience. Not only will you benefit from weekly research-led teaching, but you’ll have the chance to attend seminars with leading academics, hosted by the School of Education or other departments.

Exemptions

You can use the credits gained from this programme towards MA Special Educational Needs, meaning you’ll need to take fewer modules to achieve that qualification.
