Explain why it is important for a clinician to evaluate strengths and challenges in order to work with children, families, and educators.
Assignment 2: Developmental Disorders
You have learned that the conceptualization of autism spectrum disorders as diagnoses has evolved, with the current DSM conceptualizing one neurological disorder with common characteristics, which are presented on a wide continuum, rather than separate disorders such as Asperger’s disorder or autistic disorder.
Watch the video It’s a Different World. You may use the link provided or locate the video in the AUO library.
Describe the symptoms or characteristics of autism spectrum disorder you saw illustrated in the video that you learned about in your readings. You have learned that autism is a spectrum disorder, with some children functioning at the lower end, requiring a lot of support, and others at the higher end, needing minimal support. Describe strengths and challenges that were noted for the children in the video?
Explain why it is important for a clinician to evaluate strengths and challenges in order to work with children, families, and educators. Drawing on your readings, the video, and any other peer-reviewed sources you find relevant, explain whether research supports separate disorders (e.g., Asperger’s disorder, autistic disorder) or one disorder with a continuum of severity. Write a paper that is a minimum of 3 pages, not including a cover page and reference list. Format your paper using APA standards, to citation of sources, including in-text citations and full references. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M4_A2.doc.
