Developmental Stage Paper #1 – The First 2 Years


In 5 pages, write about ONE of the attached vignettes. As you consider what might be going on, be sure to describe the important developmental achievements of the First 2YearsONLY and why you think they are important. Then, address how the child embodies and/or challenges what we would typically expect from a child of their age based on developmental theory informed by your experiences and observations. In light of this foundation, hypothesize about how you think the child, from their perspective, in the vignette might be experiencing the world and why. Explicitly consider the ways in which children’s development in the First 2 Years is shaped by their intersecting identities of race, class, gender, culture, language and ability/disability.

Vignettes [Choose ONE]



Vignette #1 – James, [7 months old]
A young couple adopted a 7-week old boy, James. The couple lives in the city and has had a yellow Labrador retriever for many years. Now, at 7 months, they take James and the dog out for walks, wheeling him around in a small, open stroller. One day, after one of these walks, while waiting for the elevator in their apartment building, the dog poked its head into the stroller to take a closer look at James. James turned, eyes wide and looked back at the dog.



Vignette #2 – Lilly, [9 months old]
Lilly is 9 months old and an only child. Her parents, grandparents and great-grandparents surround her with love, care and support. Weekends are filled with extended family. Lilly is an easy going, happy baby who grows stronger and more active every day. Lilly began to laugh, babble, walk and talk so fast! Looking at her, it’s hard for her parents and grandparents to remember a time without her. She rarely cries and is willing to let herself be soothed by an adult of her choice when she was hurt, sad or frustrated. Lilly attends a high-quality child-care center on-site at her parents’ high school. Money was tight so Lilly’s mom, Jill, got a job after school while her dad, Liam, took care of her. Sometimes Lilly has a play date and other times it’s just Lilly and her dad. Liam and Lilly wind down their afternoon with clean-up and a story. By the time Jill arrives, Lilly has had her bath, dinner is ready, and they all eat together.



Vignette #3: Tiffany, [18 months old]
A long-time, happily married couple was surprised by pregnancy. After a healthy, closely monitored pregnancy, the couple had a baby girl, Tiffany. At 18 months, Tiffany is a happy, engaging and active little girl with 3 older siblings ages 26, 16 and 9. Despite the family’s joy and excitement over their new addition, the parents have become increasingly concerned because Tiffany isn’t talking yet, no words at all.
