In order to place children and youth with special needs into a public health framework, this course presents an introduction to and an overview of children and youth with special needs due to a developmental disability. Many aspects of developmental disability will be addressed including ‘concept’ and definitions of disability, causes, epidemiological considerations, and development of federal legislation. The scope and range of developmental disabilities will be reviewed along with classification schemes. Both national and international distributions will be considered from a sociopolitical viewpoint.
