Autism Spectrum Disorder is what the powerpoint will be on
This assignment will allow you to investigate and report on approaches to identification and assessment of a specific developmental disability by designing a PowerPoint presentation for the class. Submit your disability selection (any one of the disabilities discussed in your text: Intellectual Impairment [formerly known as Mental Retardation], Autism Spectrum Disorder, early academic learning difficulty or emotional/behavioral problems) and your date/time for the presentation to your instructor for approval by week 3. To ensure that a variety of disabilities are covered, your instructor will ensure that each student presents on a different disability on a first come first served basis, so submit your preferences as soon as possible to ensure a topic of interest. We will hear three – four presentations each week between weeks 10 and 15. You will have 15 minutes to present to the class; limit presentation to 8-12 slides. The presentation should include coverage of the following: (a) Description of the selected developmental disability, including diagnostic/classification criteria (and corresponding identification system: DSM-5, IDEA, Zero to Three) and strengths and weaknesses of individuals with this disorder; (b) Descriptions of assessments for identifying this disability, including discussion of best practice considerations identified from the research literature (must provide 5 Peer-reviewed article references supporting the points presented in your presentation), psychometric properties, technical consideration [validity/reliability], etc); (c) Description of sources of assessment information, settings, and other contextual considerations for identifying the selected developmental disability; (d) examination of cultural, language, and disability considerations for assessment. Your presentation should be interactive between you and your audience and should allow time for a question & answer period.
