During this first week, you have explored an overview of behavioral disorders in childhood and adolescents. If you were a parent without any understanding of behavioral disorders or how to help your child, you can see how overwhelming it can be when a child is diagnosed. For this week’s assignment, explore online websites that are educational in nature with the content geared toward reaching parents. Provide an assessment on how helpful and effective these websites are.
Be sure to review five websites, and then prepare an assessment of these sites by answering the following questions for your assignment. Your response to each question should include at least four sentences:
Who is the intended audience of the website?
Does the person(s) producing the content have credibility to do so? Is the person qualified to write this content?
Is the information provided supported by research?
Was the information easy to understand with the wording and language used?
Were concrete suggestions provided to parents that conveyed support?
What specific behavioral disorders were addressed on these sites?
If you were a parent with a child or adolescent behavioral disorder, would this site be helpful?
Did you find these sites credible?
Determine which level of progression does the content being evaluated falls under (such as first episode of problem behavior, chronic or recurrent problem behavior).
You are not expected to know if the information is reliable and accurate because this is an exercise where you are being asked to view these websites from a parent’s perspective.
Length: 4-5 pages, not including title and reference pages
References: Include the weekly readings, plus a minimum of two other scholarly resources (within the last 5 years). Also, include citations for your five websites.
