Learning & Instruction > Concept Development

Concept development refers to the basic understanding that is necessary to make sense of one's world. This includes ideas about the self and others, objects, and the environment. This foundationsl understanding is crucial to communication, travel, and independence. While typical children usually develop an understanding of basic concepts through incidental learning, children with a combined vision and hearing loss must often be taught these same concepts through repeated exposure in an intentional manner.
