This course provides an overview of the needs and development of children. Children's needs depend upon their age, stage of development, attachment to their family/caregivers, and reaction to what is happening around them.
The objectives of this course include understanding:
- Age appropriate behavior in children
- A child's basic needs
- Why the Minimum Sufficient Level of Care Standard is in the best interest of children
- The cycle of attachment
- How abuse and neglect can disrupt a child's development
