Article One What is the title of the article? Provide a citation for the article in APA format. Norbury, C. F., & Sparks, A. (2013). Difference or disorder? Cultural issues in understanding neurodevelopmental disorders. Developmental Psychology , 49 (1), 45-58. doi:10.1037/a0027446 What is the purpose of the article? In the article “Difference or disorder? Cultural issues in understanding neurodevelopmental disorders,” the purpose of the study was to determine what, if any, affect culture had on the diagnosis of developmental disorders, specifically autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and specific language impairment (SLI). What is the hypothesis of the study? In other words, what claims do the authors make in the article? What was the outcome(s) of the study, that is, what conclusions did the authors make as a result of the study? Norbury and Sparks (2013) state, “Specific behaviors that are included in diagnostic frameworks and the point at which individual differences in behavior constitute abnormality are largely arbitrary decisions,” hypothesizing that culture has a much larger impact on autism prevalence than the diagnostic tools suggested. Their study analyzed factors such as linguistic skills, behavior, and social-cognitive ability, cross-referenced with differences in culture, views of normative behavior, and medical models. What variables (factors) are being looked at as an influence on abnormal behavior?

The independent variables were culture and ethnicity, and the dependent variable was instances of autism. If these variables or the relationship between these variables have been studied before, what have other studies found? This shows historical significance. A similar study sought to identify whether children whose language differed from mainstream American English had language disorders or if their linguistic style was indicative of a different dialect spoken at home. The study was incredibly successful and even spawned an assessment tool, however Norbury and Sparks (2013) note that standardized assessments based on cultural normativity are still lacking, hence their study focusing on such. What type of research design is used in the study? The design used in the study was descriptive, focusing on the collection and comparison of existing data from other studies to determine the global rates of ASD. This data was then used to highlight significant differences between the rates of ASD between countries and races. Do you think the research in this article was conducted in an ethical manner? Why or why not? This study was done in an ethical manner, as it followed the ethical principles and code of conduct put forth by the American Psychological Association (2017), which are beneficence and nonmaleficence, fidelity and responsibility, integrity, justice, and respect for people’s rights and dignity. This study focused on the collection of data from existing ethical studies, which appears to adhere to the principles set forth by the APA.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
