Watch the two assigned videos on physical development: Physical Development; The First Five Years. (2009) (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and Physical Development; Ages 7 – 12. (2009) (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..

Physical development, especially in infancy and toddlerhood but also into middle/late childhood, is primarily focused on the development of fine and gross motor skills.  But the milestones and activities for each age group are very different.  For example, coloring or playing with clay would not be an appropriate activity for an infant to improve fine motor skills, but it would be for the early childhood room. And in middle/late childhood, children are developing the muscle mass to greatly improve their abilities to run and jump and play organized games that would be not be appropriate for infants or toddlers.  There are lots of website aimed at both parents and educators that describe activities to promote development.  The activities you select do not have to be complex, but they do need to be age appropriate and grounded developmental theory. Focus on the primary developmental tasks of each age period.  For each of the three activities, write a paragraph that addressed the following: 

· Describe the activity in some detail (provide more than just the name of the activity).

· Describe the theory and/or research which supports the use of this class or activity.

· Identify how the activity enhances physical development.  (Note it might also promote cognitive, and/or socioemotional development as well.  For example, organized team-based games not only promote physical development in middle/late childhood but also promote psychosocial development by teaching team work and fair play.) 

· Remember that this will be completed for an Infant Room, a Toddler Room, and a Middle/Late Childhood Room.

· Must be two double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style

Must use at least one credible source in addition to the course text.

500-700  words in APA with 2 scholarly references

Topic: Case of Elderly Couple  Thread: Read the Case Study below and then answer the following questions: 1.Consider Lydia’s and John’s cognitive and physical limitations as well as their social support. If you were presenting this case to a team of other human services providers, what developmental theories, concepts, and principles help explain this case? (Use the readings from Modules/Weeks 7–8 to help you answer this question). 2.What other information might you need to fully evaluate the situation in which Lydia and John live? 3.If you were the protective service worker, what are the options for this couple? Identify several feasible plans with explanation and support from a source of information. Include the risks and benefits of each option. Then, identify what your final recommendation would be and why.  Case Study   Lydia and John were a couple in their nineties who lived in their own home and had been married over sixty years. Both were confused and forgetful. They had two sons who were in their seventies and lived in nearby towns. One son was estranged from them. The other was somewhat involved in their lives, but he had a mentally ill wife and health problems of his own to deal with. The couple first came to the attention of a protective service worker when John was hospitalized after a fall. When left on her own, Lydia’s confusion became more pronounced. A referral was made for home care services, but, when a worker went out to assess the couple, their son was present and refused services. Based on concerns of benign neglect, a protective services report was issued. A case worker investigated and substantiated the report, citing the son’s interference with services and the couple’s own inability to provide adequate care for each other. The protective services worker found both John and Lydia to be very forgetful and somewhat confused, though Lydia was the more impaired. Due to their increased physical frailty, they had been using only the first floor of their home. Since the bedrooms and bathroom were upstairs, the living arrangement presented several problems for the couple. Lydia had a regular bed, but John was sleeping on a cot. The low height of the cot caused him to lose his balance easily, resulting in several falls. Since there was no toilet downstairs, they were using a bucket in the kitchen and emptying it outside. They were unable to maintain their home and conditions became unsanitary. The son tried to help, but he had his own limitations. The elderly couple was well able to afford assistance, but they did not want to spend the money. Furthermore, even though the son who helped with paying the bills was not taking advantage of his parents financially, he was obviously concerned with “preserving his inheritance.” Meanwhile, John and Lydia were extremely conservative in terms of how they chose to spend their money; they insisted they could not afford help.

  Final Project Outline

In Week 1, you were asked to review the Final Project Guidelines and begin thinking about your timeline (Part 1) for the Final Project. Consider what you have learned so far in this course and how you can use theory to support your understanding of identity development. How do your experiences align with theory you have learned? What new insights have you gained? As you move forward, be sure to identify salient elements of developmental theories and how these align with your life experiences.

For this Assignment, you are asked to provide a basic outline for your final project. Identify the six life events that you will use for your final project. Remember that at least one of each must have occurred in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. For each event, briefly identify (2–3 sentences each) why this event was significant in your development.

Note: Although you must support your work with integration of developmental theory in the final submitted project, this is not necessary for this Assignment.
