Course Reviews

  1. Profile photo of Kevin Rowark Kevin Rowark says:

    Having knowledge of GDD will inform my practice and my ability to flag up such issues for a child at an earlier stage and thus provide the necessary referrals to professionals who can support children with GDD.
    Child development theory can be used to measure the child's developmental progress and any concerns regarding GDD can be identified by tracking child's developmental progress. Early help is important.
    Global delay can be a result of medical conditions and neglect
    Global delay can potentially be overcome with time and the correct level of stimulation and support.
    Great
