The child will be entering Grade 2. 1) Provide imaginary information about the naturalistic environments in which the child functions everyday (make up information about family, school, and culture). 2) Give the child 3 strengths and 3 weaknesses across the areas covered by the Information Processing Model (input, processing, output, emotional context and executive functions). These strengths and weaknesses should match with an ADHD profile. B) Write 100 words (MAX) describing 3 assessments you will use.

Make it clear what area of weakness you are assessing with each test. 1) Give examples of informal assessments that you would conduct (collections of the child’s work or observations of behavior). 2) Give an example of a formal assessment (give the specific name of the test you would use). 3) Make sure you assess the context of the child (family, home, school strengths and weaknesses). C) Write 300 words (MAX) describing 3 treatment options you will suggest to address the child’s weaknesses. 1) Describe educational supports at each tier of the Fttl model that address each of the child’s 3 weaknesses. 2) Include information from two peer-review articles about treatment options recently proven effective for children with ADHD.
