Create and analyze a 1–2-page simulated case study of a child with developmental challenges, aged 2–5
years old. 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.
Part 1: Create the Case: Early Childhood
Create a simulated case study, relevant to your area of specialization, of a pre-school child, 2–5 years of age,
who presents developmental challenges related to factors described by Piaget’s or Vygotsky’s developmental
milestones and Bronfenbrenner’s ecological theory.
Your case study should be 1–2 pages in length and it should describe:
The child’s strengths and challenges.
The medical, family, and social context.
The developmental challenges evident in the behavior of the child.
Individual and cultural factors that theory and/or research indicate could impact the child’s development.
Explore theory and research related to early childhood development in the cognitive domain.
Use either Piaget or Vygotsky to describe those age- or stage-related milestones expected at the age of your
Develop your case by creating a challenge for the child in the cognitive domain in early childhood. Describe
what the child struggles with in not meeting the expected theoretical milestones in the cognitive domain.
Explore, through theory and research, Bronfenbrenner’s ecological theory of the various systems that can
influence development. Describe the typical influences in those systems that would likely be most evident for a
child in the preschool years.
Develop your case study further by creating an environmental context for the child in specific systems in
Bronfenbrenner’s theory. Include any specific issues that you want to explore through research, such as
influences of a specific culture or ethnicity, specific socioeconomic status, family structure, attachment issues,
and neighborhood context.
