Your neighbor tells you that her nine-year-old son has been having behavior and academic problems in school. “His teacher recommended taking him to the pediatrician to get a prescription for Ritalin,” she said.
In a well-thought-out paper integrating information from the text and the module readings, make an argument for why your neighbor should first have her son evaluated by a clinical psychologist.
Discuss the types of assessment tools the psychologist might use in his or her evaluation and how these tools would help in guiding diagnosis and treatment. Make sure to use appropriate sources of information and reference them properly, in American Psychological Association (APA) style.
This paper should be 3–4 pages and formatted in APA style.
