Writing Assignment 2 For this assignment, you can choose one of the vignettes to write about. You should read the vignette and discuss the developmental stage that the child is in, the biological and environmental influences that could be impacting him/her at this time in their lives, and any other variables that could be affecting them at this stage. Think about where they should be developmentally with motor skills, verbal/communication skills, cognitive abilities, and social skills/peer interactions. Are there any risks for them at this time? What can be done to reduce those risks, etc… The point of this assignment is to integrate a variety of information learned in this class up to this point in to explaining or predicting risk or expected/predicted outcomes. You can use various theories to support the information you provide. Make sure that the information comes from this class.
