ASSIGNMENT - MOD005912 Life Cycle Development

Case Study: Sophie

Sophie is 11 years old. Maria, Sophie’s mother, died when she was 4 years old. Sophie lives with her father, Tom, and her siblings Adam (age 13) and Melanie (16).

Melanie identifies as a lesbian and LGBT rights activist. Tom resents his  daughter’s views and activism and arguments often occur between them. Sophie observes them shouting at each other.

Adam has been diagnosed as having autism spectrum disorder (ASD). He is high functioning but often shuts himself away in his room for hours. Melanie has lots of friends and Sophie feels lonely and cut off from her siblings.

Sophie does not get on with Victoria, Tom’s new partner, who has lived with the family for several years. Victoria is white but Tom is of black African and Caribbean heritage. Sophie’s mother was also white.

Sophie often does not go to school saying she is unwell and tired. She also often does not eat and is thin for her age. She rarely does her homework 

Victoria has fibromyalgia and is often tired and sometimes low. Despite her health problems she manages to work full-time as a hospital pharmacist. She also often has to take care of the children when Tom is at work in the evenings. Tom is a paramedic who regularly works long hours and/or night shifts. The couple frequently argue when the children are in bed. These arguments are often about money, childcare and alcohol. Victoria thinks that Tom drinks too much alcohol.

ANGLIA RUSKIN UNIVERSITY GENERIC ASSESSMENT CRITERIA AND MARKING STANDARDS

LEVEL 5 (was level 2)

MOD005912 Life Cycle Development

Level 5 reflects continuing development from Level 4. At this level students are not fully autonomous but are able to take responsibility for their own learning with some direction. Students are expected to locate an increasingly detailed theoretical knowledge of the discipline within a more general intellectual context, and to demonstrate this through forms of expression which go beyond the merely descriptive or imitative. Students are expected to demonstrate analytical competence in terms both of problem identification and resolution, and to develop their skill sets as required. LO1: Discuss the different life stages of the life cycle
