How developmental specialists understand childhood
from Online Psychology Degree
About 13 percent of children between the ages of three and seventeen have some sort of developmental or behavioral disability such as autism or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Fewer than half of those children are identified before they begin school, which means they are missing out on the opportunity to get the early interventions they need to be successful in social and educational settings. Interest and growth in the field of childhood development has grown in the last fifty years as research continues to reveal how successful specialists can be in changing the lives of children.
