Description of LASAs:

LASA 1: Assessment of Child’s Behavior

In this assignment, you will analyze a case study (choose from one below) to create an

 assessment of a child’s behavior by identifying the child’s role in the family, school, and peer

groups. Be sure to choose a case study that you are interested in studying throughout this class for

 both LASA assignments. You will then evaluate the behaviors that are seen in this child and

ascertain the possible determinates of his/her behavior given what you have learned about the

influences on a child such as family, peers, school, and community. You will review what type

of role he/she may be playing in the family as well as in the school. Keep in mind that this is an

assessment of an individual in community and not an introspective psychological type of

assessment. Support your answers with information cited from at least two peer-reviewed

academic sources and your textbook.

Case study 2:

Brandon is an African-American eight year old child in third grade who is in danger of having to

repeat the grade. He continues to struggle with being able to concentrate in class and says he is

“bored” when students have to just sit and read; sometimes he talks and walks around the class

and other times he draws pictures and pays no attention at all. He frequently gets sent down to

the principal’s office for this behavior but does not seem to mind because the principal lets him

play and gives him snacks (because he always is complaining about being hungry) and often

compliments him on his art work. When his parents were told about his behavior they were

exasperated because he behaves even more poorly at home, stealing and breaking his siblings’

things and sneaking food into his room. He even has nightly bed-wetting accidents on a fairly

regular basis (the doctor has ruled out physical problems as a reason for these). His mother works

a part time job at a local gas station when the kids are in school. His father used to come home

right around dinner time and was often pretty tired, but was recently laid off and is depressed and

spends a lot of time in bed. 

Directions:

1. Please choose a case study from the list provided.

2. Present the case by explaining the child’s behavior in light of your understanding of the

   ecology of the child giving special attention to:

   a. family and social environment

   b. economic circumstances

  c. health care access,

  d. physical environment and safety

  e. behavior

  f. education

  g. health

  Apply your knowledge of these indicators to explain possible determinates of various

   aspects of the stated behaviors in the case study.

3. Given your understanding of the ecology of the child, the ecology of the family, and the

   ecology of socialization, choose the top three areas that seem to be the most influential in

   this child’s behavior and support your answer with professional information from the text

    and the two peer-reviewed research articles.

4. Review the role this child plays in his/her family and how that correlates with the

  expressed behavior. Analyze the different theories of microsystem and microsystem

  influences including parenting orientation and parenting style and how that impacts

    children; then apply the theory that might best fit this particular case study.

5. Review the role this child plays in his/her school and peer group and how that correlates

  with the expressed behavior. Analyze the impact of the school as a socializing agent and

Write your paper in Word format. Be sure to include an APA style title page and references page

and to cite your sources according to current APA standards. Your paper should be 4-6 pages in

length (in addition to the title page and references page). Make sure you write in a clear, concise,

and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution

of sources; display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
