KSA of the Day: Child Development

Only a small portion of those who sit for the social work licensing exam have had the opportunity to do clinical work with children. That leaves some studying to do. On the ASWB exam, it's not wildly uncommon to find questions that test your ability to understand the basics of what to expect of children at different stages and how to assess problems. Those are the questions covered in the simple, two-word KSA item: child development.

Child development is a topic that can't be even close to adequately covered in a single blog post. Happily, many others have written at length about the topic, leaving you with lots to read and digest. Here are a few stand-outs. If you find others, please don't hesitate to post them in comments. It takes a village of social workers to help each social worker pass the ASWB exam!
