Developmental Psychology

Developmental psychology is concerned with change and stability across the life-span. Developmental psychologists answer questions about how behaviour is organised and how it changes with age.

  • What is the nature and significance of temperament over the life span?
  • How should we diagnose and deal with dyscalculia?
  • How do children acquire understanding of fractions and algebra?
