After selecting the four elements described above, write  describe how knowledge of lifespan development will inform your work as a professional in the chosen career. Explain how you would apply your knowledge of human development to meet the needs of an individual in one specific period of development. The needs of the individual will be determined not only by the period of development but also by the topic/issue you selected. Include the application of at least one major theory of development in working with the individual. Explain how you will use theory to guide your work with the person in the specific period of development. Do not assume the reader has prior knowledge about the career, theory or topic.  
     CHOOSE At least 4 topics
• Prenatal care • Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) • Preschool/ early childhood education • Autism • Child Maltreatment • Childhood Obesity • Special Education • Learning Disabilities • ADHD • Emotional and Behavioral Disorders (identify one specific disorder) • Intellectual Disabilities • Giftedness • Childhood stress and trauma • Peer status • Bullying • Baumrind’s Parenting Styles • Gender issues • Adolescent sexual behavior • Teen pregnancy • Sex education • Substance abuse • Juvenile delinquency • Adolescent substance abuse • Adolescent depression • Sexual harassment • Sexual assault • Topics related to health in early adulthood • Topics related to sexuality in adulthood 
The first paragraph should briefly introduce  and end with a thesis statement. • After the introductory paragraph, the first main section should describe the career and include why a knowledge of human development is necessary for the profession. The section should begin with a heading that identifies the career. The education/training requirements for the career should also be described. The professional association applicable to the chosen career must be used as a main source of information in this section. You should find the required information on the website of the relevant professional association. See the handout on professional associations for examples. In addition, you must include information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics ( for information about the career. Both of these sources must be cited using APA format. • In the second section, describe one period of development (e.g., infancy, early childhood, middle/late childhood, adolescence, early adulthood, middle adulthood, or late adulthood). The section should begin with a heading that identifies the developmental period. Explain why knowledge of that specific developmental period is important for one to be effective in the career/profession. Include examples of how such knowledge would be applied to an individual in that period of development. This may include knowledge of cognitive, socioemotional, or biological development. At least one of the three developmental processes must be addressed, more than one if possible, based on the knowledge required for the profession. Your textbook should be the main source for this information. Any additional sources must be “scholarly”, as defined later in this document under Additional Sources. • In the third section, describe a topic or issue that would likely present itself during the developmental period described. The section should begin with a heading that identifies the topic. You will explain how your knowledge about the issue might affect the way you provide service to the individual as a professional in the career. Based upon information 3 learned about the topic and the period of development, describe at least one thing you will do to be most effective in working with the individual (client/patient, student, etc.) because of information learned in this course. Your understanding of the topic and related research on the topic should be clearly demonstrated. Your textbook should be the main source for this information. Any additional sources must be “scholarly”, as defined later in this document under Additional Sources. • In the fourth section, apply one of the major theories of development (Piaget, Erickson, Bronfenbrenner). For late adulthood, you may instead choose to use Activity Theory, Socioemotional Selectivity Theory, or Selective Optimization with Compensation Theory. For early adulthood, you may choose to extend Piaget’s theory to include   thought. Again, your textbook should be the main source for this information. The section should begin with a heading that identifies the theory. Explain how knowledge of the theory would be applied by the professional in their work with an individual (patient, client, student, etc.) who is in the same period of development and who is experiencing the issue/topic previously described. If you applied one of these theories in the second section (period of development), you will apply a different theory 
Example: A student might select occupational therapist as a career and early childhood as the developmental period. She might select autism as a specific topic. She could explain how Bronfenbrenner’s social-ecological theory might be applied to address a child’s needs in multiple settings using this theory. Another student might select child welfare worker as a career and child maltreatment as a topic. He would select any one of the developmental periods in which child maltreatment could be experienced. If Erickson’s theory were selected as the theory and applied to the child in middle/late childhood, the student would explain how his knowledge about the Industry vs. Inferiority stage could help to inform how he works with the child, the factors he might pay attention to, or ways he might choose to intervene to help the child be most successful.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
