Discussion 2: Choosing the Proper Assessment: Intervention

Intervention is key to getting a child placed and properly diagnosed so that the services required are provided in a timely manner. You will want to do whatever you can to avoid a delay in services for children who need intervention and additional assistance. Based on your previous research on intervention assessments and strategies, you will now create an intervention scenario for your peers to attempt to answer.

Base this on your research, your knowledge of the assessment and condition, and the age of the child and learning environment. Challenge your peers, but also give enough information to guide the choice. Choose a scenario to respond to what challenges you as well. Your score comes from your posts, rationales, and feedback, not whether you select the right assessment in your response!

To prepare:

· Review and reflect on the Learning Resources for this module and the previously created scenario/case study for Discussion 1 in Week 7.

· Create a scenario/case study based on your research from the previous weeks’ assignments that will require your peers to choose an intervention assessment that is appropriate to the situation. Give enough information on the child and the situation, but not so much as to provide an answer quickly. Make sure you indicate the age of the child.

By Day 3 of Week 8

Post your scenario.

By Day 5 of Week 8

Select a posted scenario and indicate the intervention assessment you would choose for this child at this point in time.

Explain the following:

· Why this is the best assessment for this child

· What information this assessment will provide

Support your rationale with research.

Try to choose a scenario that has not already been addressed by another peer. Address supporting diversity and multiculturalism.

Note: Cite your research and provide appropriate references in APA format to substantiate your thinking.
