Bill Hyatt/Developmental Stages

Bill Hyatt was born with Cerebral Palsy. However, he was not properly diagnosed with this condition until he was three years old. At this age, Mr. Hyatt would have been in the second of Erikson’s developmental stages; Autonomy vs. Shame and Doubt ( Since his parents were over protective due to his disability, it would be logical that Mr. Hyatt struggled to be independent and learn the basic activities of daily living. He states that his parents thought he would always be in a wheel chair and they would always take care of him.
During the Industry vs. Inferiority stage, Mr. Hyatt discovered that he was not like his typical male peers or his special needs peers. He realized that he would not be able to have a physically demanding job, as an adult. Most young boys dream of having an exciting career, involving wild fantasies of saving the world or walking on the moon. Mr. Hyatt realized this would not be a possibility for himself. His school automatically assumed that being physically impaired meant that he was unable to accomplish the same academic tasks as his typical peers and placed him in remedial classes. This made it difficult for him to find a place to fit in and be accepted. Mr. Hyatt states that he continues to feel that way as an adult.
Vgotsky postulated that children learn within the context of their culture (Wikipedia). The cultural framework of Mr. Hyatt’s world dictated that he had to do what all other disabled youth did upon leaving high school and that was go to work in the special workshop. Mr. Hyatt’s family and school teachers did not place high expectations on him and didn’t expect him to do anything other than sit in his wheelchair for the rest of his life. It wasn’t until he expressed the vision of his future to a disabled adult that worked with him…...

Developmental Stages

...During the physical developmental stages there are significant milestones that these school age children experience. By the beginning of middle childhood, children typically have acquired a leaner, more athletic appearance ("Cliff Notes", 2000-2012). All through the middle childhood weight gain and height is at a steady increase. During this developmental stage an individual will lose his or her baby teeth and their permanent teeth will come through. Depending on the individual a child can begin the early stages of puberty during this time. Physical development (early adolescence) The physical development of a child in the early adolescence stages can be a drastic change for an individual. The hormones of the early adolescence are at a rapid growth and are better developed throughout the years. As the level of hormones increase this causes acne to form as well as his or her height and weight will increase. Emotional Development (middle childhood) As children develop in age each individual child will react to various situations differently. During the middle childhood stage an individual’s emotional development goes through some drastic changes. To give an example of the transitions that he or she will face is the start of school that will allow them to come into contact with new teachers and also the opportunity to build friendships with other children. During this stage a child will gain a sense of responsibility as well as the feeling of being more......

Developmental Psychology

...Developmental psychology Kohlberg’s Moral Development Theory: Kohlberg’sMoral judgment data from a longitudinal study of 26 undergraduates are scored by Kohlberg’s newly revised manual and replicate his original finding that a significant percentage of subjects appear to regress from adolescence to adulthood. The persistence of relativistic regression in these data suggests the need to revise the theory. The same hypothetical moral dilemmas are also scored according to an alternative coding scheme based on the hypothesis of an adult form of cognitive development. Results indicate that the Kohlberg regressors are progressors when evaluated against a standard of commitment in relativism instead of absolute principles of justice. Real-life data on the same subjects suggest that this progression is related to actual experiences of moral conflict and choice which lead to the restructuring of moral judgment to a more dialectical mode. It is suggested that this alternative notion of postconventional development is necessary for understanding (and scoring) adult moral judgment. Piaget's theory of cognitive development: Piaget's theory of cognitive development is a comprehensive theory about the nature and development of human intelligence, first developed by Jean Piaget. It is primarily known as a developmental stage theory, but in fact, it deals with the nature of knowledge itself and how humans come gradually to acquire, construct, and use it. To Piaget, cognitive development......

...daily errands with their mother (grocery, pick up 8-year-old brother, pay bills, visit grandmother, DR appt., etc.) and return home normally by 5:00 pm for dinner preparation and his father is returning from work. Aziz is in bed by 8:30 pm every night. ` Observation of Aziz's biosocial development indicates he meets the expectations of his age group. Aziz displayed appropriate sensation when his mother turned on the lamp light while holding him and he began to blink his eyes. Additionally, Aziz was observed with appropriate perception, while turning to look at his mother when she called his name to come to her for a pamper change. Aziz's gross motor skills appeared normal, due to his ability to crawl, pull up on the corners of tables, and walk while holding onto furniture. His fine motor skills appeared to be intact also, confirmed by him repeatedly sticking out his tongue, as if he weres teasing us. His mother reports his brothers tease him and he now sticks out his tongue at everyone. He also used his thumbs and forefingers to pick up small lego block toys and move them. Tools to measure appropriate neurological maturation were not present during this observation. The understanding of proper brain functioning was taken into consideration with Aziz's reflex and responses. Aziz's cognitive development appears normal for his age group. His development indicates he is in Piaget's fourth stage of sensorimotor intelligence. Aziz used new adaptation and......

...ECPSC- 2013 CURRENT AFFAIRS HANDOUT NO 13 LOKPAL BILL 1. Background. (a) The Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) while recommending the constitution of Lokpal was convinced that such an institution was justified not only for removing the sense of injustice from the minds of adversely affected citizens but also necessary to instill public confidence in the efficiency of the administrative machinery. Following this, the Lokpal Bill was for the first time presented during the fourth Lok Sabha in 1968, and was passed there in 1969. However, while it was pending in the Rajya Sabha, the Lok Sabha was dissolved, and so the bill was not passed at that time. (b) The bill was revived in 1971, 1977, 1985, 1989, 1996, 1998, 2001, 2005, 2008 most recently in 2011. Each time, after the bill was introduced to the house, it was referred to some committee for improvements a joint committee of parliament, or a departmental standing committee of the Home Ministry, and before the government could take a final stand on the issue, the house was dissolved. Several flaws have been cited in the recent draft of the Lokpal Bill. Meanwhile the activists of India Against Corruption (IAC) have prepared a draft for the bill called Jan Lokpal Bill. 2. Composition of Lokpal. The Lokpal will be a three member body with a chairperson who is or was a chief justice or Supreme Court judge, and two members who are or have been high courts judges or chief justices.

Developmental Milestones

...multidisciplinary; which means from scientists from many academic disciplines biology, psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics all contribute to our understanding of human development (Berger, 2012). Children have a set of universal developmental milestones that they will all reach upon a certain time. When children are meeting their developmental milestones there are factors that can come into play that can cause the milestones to vary such as cultural, biological, and environmental. Different cultures have different expectations for their children that can affect their developmental milestones. A milestone that is expected from a specific culture is known as cultural milestone. For instance the Chinese culture used to bind young girls feet, which would hinder their bone development and could also affect the way that they walked (Karasik, Adolph, Tamis-LeMonda, Bornstein, 2010). Cultural milestones can affect the child from reaching or progressing a universal milestone. Another way that development can vary is due to biology or the genetics that are passed down. The interaction of genes from the mother and genes from the father affects the embryo’s growth in many ways (Berger, 2012). Genetics can vary many different developmental stages starting with the embryo. One instance of this is the deciding factor of gender for the baby depends on which chromosome (x or y) was passed from the father. Another instance of how genetics can affect development is with......

Developmental Approach

...Paul B. Baltes’s Life-Span Developmental Approach 1. Development is lifelong. Development is a lifelong process of change. Each period of the life span is affected by what happened before and will affect what is to come. Each period has unique characteristics and value. No period is more or less important than any other. 2. Development is multidimensional. It occurs along multiple interacting dimensions—biological, psychological, and social—each of which may develop at varying rates. 3. Development is multidirectional. As people gain in one area, they may lose in another, sometimes at the same time. Children grow mostly in one direction—up—both in size and in abilities. Then the balance gradually shifts. Adolescents typically gain in physical abilities, but their facility in learning a new language typically declines. Some abilities, such as vocabulary, often continue to increase throughout most of adulthood; others, such as the ability to solve unfamiliar problems, may diminish; but some new attributes, such as wisdom, may increase with age. People seek to maximize gains by concentrating on doing things they do well and to minimize losses by learning to manage or compensate for them. 4. Relative influences of biology and culture shift over the life span. The process of development is influenced by both biology and culture, but the balance between these influences changes. Biological abilities, such as sensory acuity and muscular strength and coordination,......

...whether Hyatt or Marriott is the better investment. This report made a valuation of both companies. Because both companies are attractive investments, the report will make a direct comparison to find the company that can offer the best future return on investment. 1. Strategy analysis 2.1 Industry analysis and Companies’ background Currently, hotels make up a giant industry. In 2010, consumers rented out 4.8 million rooms at 51,000 different properties, and in 2009, the industry took in a total of $127 billion.  The industry employed over 1.7 million workers last year and paid out about $186 billion in wages to a very diverse group of employees occupying both low and high skill and wage positions. Hotels and motels are found in the following areas: approximately 40% in suburban areas, 40% in towns, 9% in cities, 4% near airports and 7% at resorts.  Franchising hotels and motels is appealing because brand name is so essential. Each name represents reputation and standards as well as a certain niche in the quality of its facilities and its cost. Often chains have multiple brands representing different levels of quality and cost. Hyatt Hotels Corporation, headquartered in Chicago, is a leading global hospitality company. The Company's subsidiaries manage, franchise, own and develop hotels and resorts under the Hyatt®,Park Hyatt®, Andaz®, Grand Hyatt®, Hyatt Regency®, Hyatt Place® and Hyatt House® brand names and have locations on six continents.

Developmental Psychology

...TO CRITICALLY LOOK AT DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGICAL THEORIES? . The term development is very broad and multi-dimensional that it is a topic dealt with in almost every discipline. Psychology is also a multi-dimensional discipline, and when encompassing development it constructs a field of study known as developmental psychology. The main focus of this area is on human growth throughout the lifespan. Originally, developmental psychology was concerned with infants and children, but the field has since expanded to include adolescence, adult development and aging. This is due to the fact that although childhood is obviously a time of tremendous change, people also continue to grow and develop during the early adult, middle age, and senior years. Inclusive in this field are related topics such as child development, intellectual development, cognitive development, and the aging process. In simpler terms then, developmental psychology is defined as the scientific study of age-related changes that occur in human beings cross different domains over the course of life. The direct focus of developmental psychology on human growth involves thorough observation and examination in order to be able to categorise and label a being. This marking of belonging to a certain group is another transformation underwent by developmental psychology from......

Developmental Stage Analysis

...Developmental Stage Analysis The two clients that I have selected for my analysis are two year old Ben who is beginning the toilet training process. And my second client Jake who is forty- five years old and is feeling unappreciated, Jake has recently purchased a corvette after driving a truck for the last twenty years. Ben is going through the Preoperational stage. During this time, children start using language to explore and understand their worlds (rather than relying primarily on sensory and motor activities). In this stage, children ask questions and use symbolic thinking. They may, for example, use words and images to refer to concepts. This is a time for pretending and magical thinking. Children in this phase are somewhat limited by their egocentrism. They can only imagine the world around them from their own perspective. Ben is going through that “the world stops when I say so” phase right now. He expects everyone around him to stop and listen to what he is saying. If he gets the attention he desires, all is well; if not, a screaming fit may ensue. According to Piaget (1936/1952), children in this stage have not yet mastered operations (hence, it is called the preoperational stage), which are the logical reasoning processes that older children and adults use to understand the world. . Licht,D (2014) For example, these children have a difficult time understanding the reversibility of some actions or events. They may have trouble comprehending that ...

Developmental Stage of Adolescents

...Developmental stage of Adolescents In this essay, I am going to discuss the developmental stage of the adolescent aged from 12 to 20 years old from the physical development like puberty and sexual maturity, the social development like peer pressure, popularity and rejection in school and the issues surrounding them like juvenile delinquency and gangs, eating disorders like obesity, anorexia nervosa and bulimia. I will also be touching on the causes of these issues. Physical Development during adolescence Between the ages of 12 to 20 is considered the most life changing, awkward and exciting stage of a human being’s life as they will go through the physical changes which might cause them to have some embarrassing moments. Physical and sexual maturation are processes set in motion by the genes and executed by hormones. Most males and females feel most awkward during this stage as it is during this time that physical attraction between the two sexes will develop and they become more conscious of their own appearance. Adolescents experienced the most dramatic physical changes during this stage as their body undergoes a range of transformation from child to adult. What they are experiencing is called puberty, the process of biological change that results in an individual’s attaining sexual maturity and becoming capable of producing a child. (Sigelman and Rider, 2006, p.130) As the level of growth hormones circulating in the body increases, the adolescent growth......

...cognitive problem into smaller steps by asking the student to utilized his current knowledge of the Spanish alphabet and recall the sounds that each letter makes in order to help sound out each syllable (Belsky, 2013, p.156). I sounded out the syllables first and then he would repeat after me. After a few times of repeating after me the student was able to recite the colors independently. This demonstrates how unique the zone of proximal development is for each person and how sometimes some students require more scaffolding than others before reaching their potential capacities. This experience also demonstrates how the zone of proximal development is constantly changing as the student’s current knowledge change and expands. Differing Stages of Speech Development of Three-Year Olds Tuesday, November 10, 2-5pm. During early childhood language a child’s language capacity appears to explode rapidly during these years. By the time a child turns five-years old they almost have their adult language developed (Belsky, 2013, p.163). Children begin their language development by learning word sounds of language called phonemes. Phonemes are the individual word sounds of language that convey meaning to a word For example, the “h” sound of the word hat would be considered a phoneme (Belsky, 2013, p.163). By late infancy children typically begin forming single phonemes and continue to improve as time goes by. Morphemes are the smallest units of meaning in language. For example, the...

Developmental sleep onset or upon wakening. “Treatments for sleepwalking and sleep terrors are safety, sleep hygiene, behavioral management, medications, and scheduled awakenings.” “Consequences of sleep deprivation, decreased performance, impaired memory, and cognitive functioning, stress in relationships, poor quality of life, longevity, physical health, and mental health.” The readings didn’t tell us how to behavioral management to treat sleep walking and sleep terrors. Chapter 5 Jean Piagets four stages of cognitive development are Sensorimotor stage, preoperational stage, concrete operational stage, and formal operational stage. Adaption is the process of changing schemes through direct interaction with the environment. Assimilation is absorbing new experiences or information into existing schemes. Accommodation is modifying existing schemes to incorporate new information. Object permanence is understanding that objects continue to exist when out of sight. Develops in Sub stage 4. “According to piaget, a baby will use a sensorimotor scheme, such as mouthing or banging, to undertand a new object.” P.169 “Egocentrism largely explains why many preschoolers talk to themselves, even in the presence of others, and often ignore what others are telling them. This behavior illustrates the egocentric nature of preoperational children’s thinking.” P.175 I don’t have any concerns or criticism for the readings, I thought this chapter was one other best in the book, and best we......

Economies of Scale – within Hyatt there is a brand called Hyatt Park where I will focus and In this case they have an average of 200 rooms per hotels, so big hotels and they are situated on big cities where they are sure about the demand focusing on two main segments leisure and business. Economies of Scope: as product scope I selected the cross selling Product Scope: I realized that most of the Hyatt Park hotels have Spa, so they aren’t just focus on selling the room but also the spa in order to get more money. Because as we seen today its most of the times is better to have two products together than two separately in order to reduce costs and increase the profit.

...penetrate the thick protective shell-like barrier that surrounds the ovum. The first sperm that penetrates fully into the egg donates its genetic material (DNA). The egg then polarizes, repelling any additional sperm. The resulting combination is called a zygote, a new and genetically unique human organism. The term "conception" refers variably to either fertilization or to formation of the conceptus after uterine implantation, and this terminology is controversial. 3 Stages of Prenatal Germinal stage Embryonic stage Fetal stage Embryonic stage The embryonic period in humans begins at fertilization (penetration of the egg by the sperm) and continues until the end of the 10th week of gestation (8th week by embryonic age). The embryo spends the next few days traveling down the Fallopian tube. It starts out as a single cell zygote and then divides several times to form a ball of cells called a morula. Further cellular division is accompanied by the formation of a small cavity between the cells. This stage is called a blastocyst. Up to this point there is no growth in the overall size of the embryo, as it is confined within a glycoprotein shell, known as the zona pellucida. Instead, each division produces successively smaller cells. Changes by weeks of gestation Gestational age vs. embryonic age Gestational age is the time that has passed since the onset of the last menstruation, which generally or as standard occurs 2 weeks before the......
