Discuss specific

Guidelines: This paper is an analysis of the Great Transformations video that is posted
in this module. Your paper has to be based on the video and it should include all of the
following areas of analysis. Include only what is relevant to the main idea of
understanding evolution. Don’t give details on the scientists who made the discoveries.
Analytical –– What did you learn about how evolution works? What kinds of
evolutionary processes did you learn about in the video? Discuss specific
examples to illustrate your points. Explain how scientists use evidence to
support their claims. Where appropriate, use the relevant terms and concepts from
the assigned reading. Include discussion of the following:
– The evolution of whales. What was the animal that whales
evolved from like? What mechanisms were involved in the evolution of the
whale and how were they involved? Describe the process of evolution, using this
example.
– What is the evidence that today’s reptiles, birds, and mammals all
evolved from a common ancestor?
– How did fish evolve into terrestrial tetrapods?
– How do new traits develop from old ones?
– What major physical trait do humans share with fruit flies? Why
is this important?
– How do genes function in evolution?
Critical/Reflective –– How is this video relevant to moral questions involving
human-caused extinction of species? (Does it matter that human activities are
causing species to go extinct?)

Finally, don’t forget to include a word count.

Professor Feedback:
Great work for this response. I find it thoughtful and well-articulated. I would suggest relating more explicitly to what you respond to. For example, first briefly mention the point that the speaker makes, and then talk about your own thinking. Also, be more careful about grammar and word choice. Finally, don’t forget to include a word count.

Language and Communication – Clinical Linguistics
Describe what kind of tests are necessary to distinguish PPA from aphasias after a stroke or a trauma.
Present the different kinds of aphasia and a test like the AAT by which the ”normal” typeds of aphasia can be determined.
Then, argue why such a test would not apply perfectly to PPA patients.
Focus on Linguistic tests and their deficits.
Finally, sketch linguistic test that can be used for testing PPA patients and tell why this is the case.
Envisioned benefit to the applied field: Dig into more the types of aphasia

Case 4:
“Aiden”, male, 7 years, 1 month of age
Background:
Born at 37 weeks gestation with a low birth weight, Aiden had a history of asthma, environmental allergies, a diagnosis of ADD, and chronic serous otitis media (fluid in the ears) which required placement of bilateral pressure-equalization tubes three times. Aiden had previously received occupational therapy for fine motor delays.
Presenting Problem:
Aiden was referred due to concerns with delayed development of articulation and social communication skills. His parents reported he had difficulty with transitioning and would “get stuck” on an activity, struggled to keep up with peers and did not interact well with others. Aiden’s teachers reported he exhibited sadness/depression and social delays. Aiden presented with social communication deficits in the presence of average expressive and receptive language scores (Preschool Language Scale-5th Edition). The Test of Pragmatic Language was utilized to assess Aiden’s social language skills. Aiden had a standard score of 74 with an age equivalent of 4 years, 0 months. A standard score of 90 to 110 is considered to be normal limits for peers of his same age/gender. Difficulties presented included:
 Formulating questions (requests)
 Politely indicating or verbalizing dislikes
 Understanding sarcasm
 Verbalizing conflict resolution in an age-appropriate manner
 Heeding warning in various safety situations
 Interacting with less or unfamiliar individuals
 Making eye contact
 Joint play
 Impaired speech intelligibility, (/r/ distortions)
The school referred them for an Audiological evaluation.
