Review the case study in the “Social and Emotional Development Parent Case Study and Brief” and complete the brief.
The key to this assignment is to keep your audience, parents and guardians, in mind, demonstrate compassion and care, and communicate effectively to maximize comprehension.
Support your findings with 2-4 scholarly resources.
Social and Emotional Development Parent Brief Case Study and Template
Micah is a student in your class who has difficulty forming lasting bonds with his classmates, rendering partner or group activities and class events a challenge. It appears that Micah might struggle with insecure attachment issues. He also demonstrates a sharp, reactionary temperament that causes his peers frustration and leads Micah to attribute classroom problems to his peers’ actions and behaviors rather than his own actions and behaviors. Micah also shows an inability to self-regulate when asked to start or stop in-class activities. In one-on-one settings, Micah is playful and attentive to your teaching. It occurs to you that he might need goal-setting measures, as well as other specific instructional support from you and from other staff in the school.
Use the following brief format to write to Micah’s parents to keep them abreast of their child’s progress and to highlight specific support systems in place within the classroom and larger school for the student:
