This module aims to provide all of the necessary biological and psychosocial knowledge for a student to be able to read and understand the scientific literature on the causes, development, ascertainment, impact, and management of the neurodevelopmental disorder in order that they can complete other modules of the course.  It also aims to teach students how to wear this knowledge lightly translating it into relevant and comprehensible advice, appropriate to a person’s age and intellectual ability, for people with a neurodevelopmental disorder, and those close to them.
