Course summary

This BSc (Hons) Psychology with Developmental Disorders degree combines the study of key aspects of psychology with a range of developmental disorders, including dyslexia, dyspraxia and autism. This includes assessment, understanding, intervention, and safeguarding children and young people. During the Psychology with Developmental Disorders course you will foster a clear understanding of evidence-based practice and you’ll complete placements in educational settings such as local schools and pupil referral units. Graduates can consider careers in educational psychology after professional experience and postgraduate study, PGCE courses, or further study in special educational needs, occupational therapy, or speech and language therapy. Our Psychology degrees are based at the Treforest campus. USW Treforest is surrounded by green open spaces. Our students say they love the warm and friendly welcome and community atmosphere, as well as the convenience of living and studying in the same place. From listed buildings to new, modern structures, Treforest reflects the University’s history and its ambitions. Here you will find everything you need in one place - halls of residence, the library and sport centre, cafes and bars to eat and drink, and friends to spend time with.
