Grand Canyon University ASD Biological and Physical Development Scenarios Paper


The “Biological and Physical Development Scenarios,” provided in the Topic Materials address major factors that influence biological and physical development of children. Choose two scenarios from those provided. In 250-500 words for each scenario, respond to the following:

  • Describe the parts or structures of the brain that cause or are affected by the situation described in the scenario.
  • Explain in depth the genetic disorder or atypical development described in the scenario.
  • Outline the environmental factors surrounding the biological and physical development of the child. Explain how they support or impede development.
  • Discuss the effect the biological or physical disability described will have on classroom learning.

Support your findings with 2-4 scholarly resources.

Choose two of the following scenarios:

Scenario 1:

Charlie, a second grader, shows atypical difficulty in using words to verbally communicate with you and his peers. He also struggles to form relationships and bonds with others. Upon his parents’ request and thanks to his parents’ support, he was tested for a disability. The tests show that Charlie is likely on the autism spectrum. Charlie is now on an IEP.

Scenario 2:

Babies of low birth weight often face certain health conditions later in life (March of Dimes, 2016). Marc, a kindergartener in your class, was born prematurely. Testing suggests that Marc shows signs of low academic performance and ADHD. His parents are not active in his life, and he is largely raised by his grandmother.

Scenario 3:

Perinatal depression affects women during pregnancy, around childbirth, and/or during the first year post-partum and can have negative psychological and medical effects on mother and child (Muzik & Borovska, 2010). Because of her mother’s perinatal depression, a first grader in your classroom named Hailey has a difficult temperament and shows signs of cognitive developmental delay. Hailey’s parents regularly attend meetings and conferences addressing Hailey’s progress in school.
