BE SURE TO FOLLOW ALL STEPS AND MEET ALL GRADING CRITERIA REQUIEREMENTS
The value of a good assess
ment comes from the ability to conceptualize a situation and provide some language and a vehicle to promote change. Too many times in treatment, an assessment is completed as a task of the first few sessions and then left in the chart never to be reviewed again. This is a mistake, and good practice includes a constant review and update to the assessment as well as a plan of action.
Using the assessment that you completed for the LASA 1 in M3: Assignment 2, you will be able topractice making a difference in a child’s life by creating a training and intervention program for the adults in that child’s life.
Write a 2-page summary assessment in Word format and develop a 15–20-slide presentation (with detailed speaker notes) in PowerPoint format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources, including use of in-text citations and full references. Academic sources could include your textbook, required readings for this module, or academic journal articles found in the Argosy University online library.
Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M5_A1.doc and LastnameFirstInitial_M5_A1.ppt. For example, if your name is John Smith, your document will be named SmithJ_M5_A1.ppt.
By the due date assigned, deliver your assignment to the Submissions Area.
