The student will be introduced to basic terminology and the theoretical frameworks that guide the study of the human lifespan, specifically adulthood to senescence. The student will review the physiological function of different body systems, their interrelationships, and how changes occur over the course of a lifetime, focusing on adulthood to senescence. The student will correlate these changes with age appropriate motor, cognitive and social-emotional development, and demonstrate awareness and appropriate therapeutic intervention for specific issues/conditions that impact adults and elders.
