Orally Article Review:
For this assignment you will review a single scholarly article in the APUS Library and summarize what it says about a specific infant and toddler disorder of your choice (Infantile Autism, Tay-Sachs Disease, Sickle Cell Anemia and Cerebral Palsy are some examples). This 2-3 page paper must be a review of scholarly research, not commercial Psychology Today, Wikipedia or WebMD style publications or self-help or parent support organization material (the latter is very valuable to families in need of easy to digest and access information, but isn’t applicable to this assignment).
Specific Instructions for this assignment can be found in the attached document. The grading rubric is listed below.
IMPORTANT: A Turnitin Originality Report will be generated for this assignment. Additional information on Turnitin can be found in the Student Services section of the APUS Library. .
