3 Credit(s)
This course examines risk factors that affect development during childhood (Birth to 8) as well as effective interventions that can support children and families in the early years. Specifically, the impact of risk factors including socioeconomic status (SES), access (to quality early education or health care), parental characteristics (e.g., education, stress, parenting style), and child characteristics (e.g., behavior, resiliency) on child development, as well as the interaction between and among these factors will be explored. This course will also address effective intervention strategies for fostering positive development among children considered at-risk. Includes 15-hour field experience. Three lecture hours per week. Prerequisite: EEC 105 .
