The final project for this course is the creation of a case application paper that includes an in-depth analysis of a selected case study. Students will choose an
individual such as a known historical figure, a celebrity, a fictional character, or an individual known personally to the student (ALL identifying information must
be eliminated from the paper in the case of the last option). The selected individual must be a child or adolescent with a cognitive disorder or a learning
disability, and enough information must be available to include the following in the analysis:
A description of the chosen disorder and a comparison between normal brain function and the brain function of a person with the disorder
An evaluation of the relationship between psychological and physiological aspects of the disorder and the resulting negative effects on daily functioning
An assessment of the impact of recent technological advancements on the diagnosis and treatment of the disorder
Recommendations for appropriate treatment options and coping mechanisms for the selected case and other people with the disorder
Preventative measures that may be employed for others who may be at risk for the disorder
The case application paper should be a 10–12-page Word document. The final product represents an authentic demonstration of competencies highlighted by
the course outcomes because the paper requires students to 1) analyze brain areas associated with a disorder and corresponding behavioral deficits, 2) review
existing research and apply the literature to a topic in cognitive neuropsychology, and 3) assess diagnostic techniques, summarize effective treatments, and
analyze possible outcomes of those treatments. The project is divided into three milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to
scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Three, Five, and Seven. The final product will be submitted
in Module Nine.
