Every human being has basic needs, including physical, social, emotional, and environmental needs. Children have different needs based on their age, developmental level, socio-economic status, and health. This course discusses basic physical, social, emotional, and environmental needs from infancy to adolescence. It also discusses barriers that prevent children and their families from meeting their basic needs. The home health team helps families find and use resources to meet these fundamental needs in children.
