ADHD in Children and Adolescents
Topic I chose is ADHD. An individual close to me has ADHD and I get to witness their struggles on a day-to-day basis. ADHD can cause individuals to have trouble staying focus and paying attention in class rooms. This can also lead to issues with hyperactivity and controlling behavior. This specific individual may have developed ADHD as a subset of being a part of the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum (FAS) as their mother was a severe alcoholic while they were pregnant with them. FAS can lead to multiple learning disabilities and issues in an individual's life, and ADHD is one of those learning disabilities. The annotated bibliography should include a listing of at least eight resources that will be used in your case application paper. You should include the APA citation for each resource as well as a brief paragraph stating the conclusion of each resource and addressing how the information in the resource will support your project. The resources should include information about the chosen individual’s disorder/disability as well as information regarding treatment for the disorder/disability. Guidelines for Submission: The annotated bibliography should follow these formatting guidelines: 2–3 pages, double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, 1-inch margins, and citations in APA format. For each reference, the three- to five-sentence annotation should be indented in block format (similar to a direct quotation of greater than 40 words) and directly follow the reference. Students should pay attention to the following points in their annotation:  Summarize the central theme and scope of the resource  Include a paragraph that covers the following: o Evaluates the authority or background of the author o Comments on the intended audience o Compares or contrasts this work with another you have cited OR explains how this work illuminates your bibliography topic Cite the resource using APA style (see below for example). Sample Annotated Bibliography of a Journal Article The following example is what your final product for each resource should look like. This example (for the psychological research article A Bad Taste in the Mouth: Gustatory Disgust Influences Moral Judgment) employs APA style for the journal citation. The writer of this annotation follows the above points to create an annotation that summarizes the article’s main points and draws connections between that resource and other resources: Eskine, K. J., Kacinik, N. A., & Prinz, J. J. (2011). A bad taste in the mouth: Gustatory disgust influences moral judgment. Psychological Science, 22(3), 295–299. Annotation: In this article, Eskine and colleagues describe the results of an experiment that examined whether the taste in a person’s mouth influences the moral judgments that the person makes. The authors, who are researchers at the City University of New York, hypothesized that there would be a relationship between these two variables because prior research has shown that there are strong links between basic emotions and moral judgments. Indeed, the authors found that participants given a bitter drink made harsher moral judgments than those given a non-bitter drink. This article is extremely useful for my paper because it provides evidence that seemingly unimportant sensory information can influence moral judgments. Also, it nicely complements the work of Chapman et al. (2009), who found that emotional disgust and morality utilize similar brain regions. One limitation, though, is that all of the participants in the study were college students. They may have responded differently to the moral situations than older or younger participants.
