Abstract

Developmental and physical disabilities represent a significant and increasingly prevalent source of diversity in educational settings. Consequently, it is important for educators to gain a basic understanding of the learning and behavioral characteristics associated with the various types of developmental and physical disabilities. This chapter describes the most common types of developmental and physical disabilities that affect school-aged children and highlights their associated learning and behavioral characteristics. The specific disability categories described are: (a) attention-deficit, hyperactivity disorder, (b) autism spectrum disorder, (c) cerebral palsy, (d) intellectual disability, (e) learning disabilities, and (f) multiple disabilities. This general overview is intended to increase understanding of the educational needs of children with these types of developmental and physical disabilities.
