Example and Hints

DevPsych3k Unit II, Assignment 1


No example is given.


Assume that an organization (a church group, civic organization, professional association, etc.) to which you belong has just found out that you are well on your way to becoming one of the world's leading authorities on developmental psychology.  You have been asked to give a brief (about 10 minutes) presentation on a couple of the disorders that might affect the development of infants or toddlers.

Briefly describe the disorder, how common it is, how it can affect the child's development, how it can be treated, etc., but remember that your presentation cannot last longer than 10 minutes, so keep it short and to-the-point.  (Do we know the meaning of parsimony?)

Be sure to select two disorders that are likely to show up during the first two years not something that is not likely to appear until later.

Don't forget to reference the source of the information, otherwise you will have committed plagiarism.
