An examination of skill acquisition and development as the human body grows from birth till death.
This paper provides students with the opportunity to teach children with unique learning needs and to study physical, cognitive and psychosocial aspects of life from conception to death. Before a student starts teaching a child on a one-on-one basis, or with another student at the Movement Development Clinic, all students go through a compulsory three-week pre-clinic training programme.
