Topic 1: Research Introduction

The research topic is about families with cerebral palsy children. The reason for choosing this topic is that Cerebral palsy is one of the issues affecting families. Children with this condition need care from the entire family, thereby making it an integral topic for research. Cerebral Palsy impairs coordination, thus leading to problems in muscle development, hearing, speaking, swallowing, and sensation, among others. The condition is noticeable in children below the age of eight years. The topic is worth researching because it strains the family financially. Also, these families commonly suffer from depression and suicidal thoughts. Critical strains in family relationships occur, and sometimes the families get separated because of the resulting difficulties (Kyschenko & Lazareva, 2018). These children below the age of 8 need family support, and this increases the chances of fatigue in the family.

This topic is relevant to children birth through age eight because children are more commonly diagnosed with ADD/ADHD than adults are. When the children receive a diagnosis for cerebral palsy, the first eight years become the toughest for the parents. The case becomes more integral for children with severe cases of palsy. When the children fail to attain the milestones between the ages of 0 – 8, the excitement in the parents’ disappears. They forego the joy of anticipating the first steps of their child. They also forego the milestone of hearing the first words of their children (Ergün & Ertem, 2012). The specific research question is, “Does this topic need through research to establish remedies for parents ?Indeed, this topic needs thorough research to establish remedies for parents. Better ways of helping the parents adopt a positive outlook for the future of their children’s needs becomes necessary. Further, the other siblings learn to cope with the differences in the family. These differences include increased therapy lessons and hospital visitations (Berns, 2016). Grandparents also feel the impact of the cerebral palsy condition. Their anticipation of babysitting becomes ruined and sometimes replaced with external care. Therefore, so the goal of this research project was to figure out which method is best n this field serves to benefit the entire family.

Example of Annotated Bibliography (I also included the introduction):

The research topic is ADD/ADHD. The reason for choosing this topic is that many people, both children, and adults, are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and it is important to know how to treat it. This topic is relevant to children birth through age eight because children are more commonly diagnosed with ADD/ADHD than adults are. The specific research question is, “What is the best treatment for ADD/ADHD?” There are two main categories of treatment: natural/nutritional methods or medicinal methods. Some people/doctors promote one method over the other, so the goal of this research project was to figure out which method is best.

Reading, R. (2013). Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation for the treatment of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder symptomatology: systematic review and meta-analysis. Child: Care, Health & Development, 39(1), 150-151. doi:10.1111/cch.12022_2

This is a peer-reviewed article written by Richard Reading. The audience includes parents with children who have ADHD and pediatricians who treat such children. Reading talks about how omega-3 fatty acids affect the body and the specific, positive effect that omega-3 fatty acids have on children with ADHD. Reading also states that omega-3 fatty acids have benign side effects, in comparison to the many negative side effects that other medications can have. The purpose of this article is to encourage the use of omega-3 acids as a supplement to other medications used to treat ADHD. The information in this article could positively affect the child and family by helping parents to become more knowledgeable about how to safely and naturally treat their child’s ADHD. The positive effect for the child would be fewer visible symptoms of ADHD and, therefore, increased focus. The community could be positively influenced by this article because omega-3 fatty acids have health benefits for people without ADHD as well.
