Case Study Aydann is a six year old female, who was born in Ft Lauderdale Florida on July 28th, 2004. Aydann has a sister who is 18 years old and is a senior in high school. She lives with her family in a middle class neighborhood in central Florida. Aydann’s mother is of Hispanic decent and her father is of European decent. Spanish is spoken regularly in Aydann’s home by her mother, sister and grandmother, who live one block away, but Aydann has not begun speaking Spanish.

Since Aydann has a stable family unit and support from not only her grandparents, but the church that her family attends regularly, I don’t predict that by age 11 Aydann will have any social or emotional problems. I do see her language skills growing not only her English but also her Spanish; since this was about the age
