Assignment: Create a Blog Post for Parent Education

Hide Folder Information
For this week’s assignment, you will develop a blog post (500 words) or a brief podcast or video (2-3 minutes) in which you provide an accurate summary of the neurodevelopmental diagnosis you chose (you will select a diagnosis from those listed in the Neurodevelopmental disorders chapter of the DSM 5). Your audience for this post will be parents, family members, and loved ones of a newly diagnosed client.

In the post or video, you will succinctly and accurately describe:

  • Major symptoms (do not cut and paste the criteria from the DSM-5)
  • Major causes (remember, family members often feel like they did something to “cause” their loved ones’ condition.  By describing the best current evidence on causes, you can alleviate some of those fears and shame).
  • Major treatments (including medication)
  • Cultural considerations
  • Things parents and family members can do to help.

Length: You can submit your blog post or prepare a short video (2-3 minutes) if you prefer. If you submit a video, you must upload a resource/reference list to NCU One, and the video must be well-organized, clear, and concise.

Resources: Both must include 2 scholarly resources (not including the DSM-5) to support your points.

Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.
