Topic: The psychological development of deaf children and the impact of sign language on the cognitive development of deaf children.

You had your topic approved for your Human Development Project in Unit 2, began searching for resources in Unit 3, and started drafting your project in Unit 4. In Units 7 and 8, you were directed to submit your draft to Turnitin and make any necessary revisions. In this unit, you will submit your project to your instructor.

For your course project, you will explore an area of lifespan development of your choosing. You might select a topic that applies to your professional goals, or one that is simply of interest to you. You have two options for the format of your project:

Option A: Research-based examination of an area of human development, analysis of research findings on the topic, and how the findings are useful in a professional setting.

Option B: Service-based examination of how theory and research apply to real-world settings.

From the research articles you located in the library (and possibly online), try to narrow down the articles to the three that best address current research, which supports or negates the developmental theory (or theories) you have selected. You may choose to organize your project in this way:

  • Title Page.
  • Abstract.
  • Introduction (1–2 paragraphs):
    • For both options A and B, the introduction should provide an overview of the human lifespan development area, stage of development, and the related theories you have selected.
  • Body (3–4 pages):
    • Related Research:
      • Options A and B: Summarize each of the articles you are using for this project. Each summary should include the following:
        • The purpose of the research. Note: The purpose of the research will be discussed in the abstract, introduction, and discussion or conclusion sections of the articles.
        • A description of the specific methods used by the researchers to conduct the study. Note: This information is addressed in the methods section of the articles.
        • An explanation of the research findings and their implications. Note: This information is addressed in the discussions or conclusions of the articles.
    • Analyzing the Research:
      • Option A: Describe any flaws or inconsistencies with the research. Do the authors discuss any factors that may have affected the findings?
      • Option B: Describe any flaws in the research or inconsistencies between the research and your own experience. What factors might explain the inconsistencies?
    • Applying the Research:
      • Option A:
        • Explain how the research findings influence personal behavior and values.
        • Explain how the research findings can be used by a psychology professional in a professional setting.
      • Option B:
        • Explain how your experience and the research findings influence personal behavior and values.
        • Explain how your experience and the research findings can be used by a psychology professional in a professional setting.
  • Conclusion (1–2 paragraphs):
    • For both options A and B, explain how the research studies (and your own experience for option B) support or negate the lifespan development theory (or theories) you selected. Consider the implications of the research studies for changing or guiding social thinking.
  • Reference page (minimum of three scholarly resources).

Be sure that you have addressed each section as completely as possible and followed APA guidelines for format and style.
