Assessment 3: case study adolescent w/development disability

  

Assessment 3:

Create and analyze a 1–2-page simulated case study of an adolescent with developmental challenges. Then, create a 5–7-page intervention plan based on evidence-based strategies that have proven effective in similar cases and make projections of possible long-term impacts that current challenges may produce across the individual’s lifespan.

To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of the business community.

  • What      does the research say about the apparent inevitability of conflict between      parents and adolescents?
  • What      qualities will help a family lessen the conflict between parents and      adolescents?
  • What      does the research say about possible reasons behind adolescents’ behavior?
  • How      can you use your knowledge of adolescent behavior to work more effectively      with adolescents in your professional pursuit?
  • Should      juvenile offenders be treated differently from adults? Why or why not?
  • How      do ethnic and cultural factors affect adolescent identity development?
  • What      parenting practices can enhance adolescent social development?
  • What      are the roles of parents, siblings, and peers during this developmental      period?

Part 1: Create the Case: Adolescence

Create a simulated case study, relevant to your area of specialization, of an adolescent who presents developmental challenges related to Erikson’s age- or stage-related milestones expected at his or her age.

Your case study should be 1–2 pages in length and it should describe:

  • The      adolescent and his or her strengths and challenges.
  • A      challenge for the adolescent in terms of identity and self-concept.
  • The      medical, family, and social context.
  • The      developmental challenges evident in the behavior of the adolescent.
  • Evidence      in the case that the adolescent struggles by not meeting the expected      milestones of Erikson’s theory of adolescent development.
  • Individual      and cultural factors that theory and/or research indicate could impact the      adolescent’s development.
  • Any      other factors you deem appropriate based on your understanding of the      theory and related research.

To develop this case, you should:

  • Explore      theory and research related to development linked to adolescence.
  • Utilize      current research on adolescent brain development to describe potential      outcomes linked to brain development at this age, including important      considerations in the case you are developing.
  • Develop      your case study further by creating an environmental context for the      adolescent. Include any specific issues that you want to explore through      research, such as influences of a specific culture or ethnicity or specific      socioeconomic status.
  • Maintain      a resource list of the materials you consulted to build your case.

Follow current APA guidelines for style and formatting, as well as for citing your resources. Include a reference list of the scholarly resources you use.

Part 2: Adolescent Case Intervention Analysis

Research

Complete the following:

  • Research      evidence-based interventions that have been effective in meeting the      challenges of the adolescent you described in your case study, from the      perspective of your own professional specialization (as far as possible). 
    • Explain       how the deficits in the social-emotional developmental domain impact       development.
    • Explain       how the environmental contexts impact development.
    • State       the recommended interventions that align with your specialization.
    • Include       evidence for those recommendations and outcomes from the professional       literature.
  • Explore      briefly the literature on adult identity and self-concept, considering      that early influences can impact development across the lifespan. 
    • Explain,       from the perspective of your specialization, how the identity issues (for       example, Erikson’s theoretical perspective) that emerged in adolescence       could be manifested in adulthood.
    • Explain       how this might help in understanding and determining an approach to       working with an adult with a history of identity issues.

Structure of the Report

Use the following format to structure your report:

  • Title      page. 
    • A       descriptive title of 5–15 words that concisely communicates the purpose       of your report and includes the name of the fictional subject. Be sure to       follow Capella’s suggested format for title pages on course papers.
  • Introduction.      
    • An       overview of the paper contents, including a brief summary (approximately       ½ page) of the background information regarding the case study. (The       complete 1–2 page case you developed will be included as an appendix.)
  • Body      of the report. 
    • The       presenting challenges and primary issues.
    • An       analysis of how lifespan development theory and research may account for       the presenting challenges.
    • An       assessment of the potential impact of individual and cultural differences       on development for the age and context described in the case study.
    • Suggestions       of evidence-based intervention strategies that have proven effective in       similar cases, supported by citations of research and any applicable       theories.
    • Projections,       based on research and/or theory, of possible long-term impacts that the       current challenges may produce across the individual’s lifespan.
  • Conclusion.      
    • A       summary of what was introduced in the body of the paper with respect to       the case study context, challenges, and interventions.
  • Reference      page. 
    • A       minimum of five scholarly sources from current peer-reviewed journals,       formatted in current APA style.

Other Requirements

Your paper should meet the following requirements:

· Written communication: Write coherently to support central ideas, in appropriate APA format, and with correct grammar, usage, and mechanics.

· Length of paper: 5–7 typed, double-spaced pages, not including the title page, reference page, or case study appendix.

· References: At least five scholarly sources (peer-reviewed journals).

· APA format: Follow current APA guidelines for style and formatting, as well as for citing your resources in the body of your paper and on the reference page.

· Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 points.

Note: In graduate-level writing, you should minimize the use of direct quotes. Lengthy quotes do not count toward assessment minimums. It is your interpretation of the material and its application to practice that is assessed.
