For the essay, you must answer the following question: As an outstanding psycho

For the essay, you must answer the following question: As an outstanding psychology student, you’ve become the go-to person for your friends who have personal problems. Your close friend Michele confides in you that her eight-year-old son, Matthew, is having a difficult time in school: “His grades are atrocious,†she says, “and now his behavior has become problematic. In fact, I’ve been called to the principal’s office so many times this year that a kid in his class asked him if I worked in the school because I’m there so often!†You stifle a laugh and then turn to Michele and ask her, “How long has this been going on for?†“It hasn’t been great for a while, but this year things have gone totally south,†she answers. As you ask more questions, it becomes clear to you that Matthew is acting up because he is frustrated by his lack of academic success and that he ought to be evaluated for special education services. When you mention this to Michele, however, she becomes even more frustrated. “Are you out of your mind?†she asks. “There is no way I’m going to put my Matthew in a special education class. He is not one of those kids.†“Michele, I understand your reluctance. However, as I’ve learned in some of my classes, a lot has changed over the years in terms of special education. It’s really not like it was when we were kids. Let’s have some coffee and we can discuss the matter further.†Explain to Michele – using outside sources – what her rights are, the various special education options that exist, and why it is in her best interest to get Matthew evaluated.

You must also use at least three outside sources, but you must be careful to cite your sources so that you avoid plagiarism. The sources should be given within the essay so that the reader knows clearly which information is from which source. When giving the sources, you must provide enough information for the reader to find the citation. So writing “The New York Times†is not enough. You may provide a hyperlink to the web page you are citing from or give the name of the article, the author’s name, the date (if one is given), and where the article was drafted. Additionally, the material that you quote directly should make up no more than 30 percent of your essay answer. This means that you do “most of the talking†and use the citations to support your assertions. The essay must be at least 400 words.
