Example and Hints

DevPsych3k Unit III, Chapter 8, Assignment 1


No example is given.


Note that this assignment is the same as an earlier assignment, and future assignments.  The only difference is that I want you to select different disorders, and make sure that they are disorders likely to appear in, or become a particular problem during, this age period.

That organization that found out that you are well on your way to becoming one of the world's leading authorities on developmental psychology has called on you again.  Your previous presentation was so well received that you have been asked to come back and give a brief (about 10 minutes) presentation on a couple of the disorders that might affect the development of children between the ages of 2 and 6.

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 play years not something that is to have appeared earlier, nor not likely to appear until later.

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