Individual EvidenceDomain 3 Evidence_Learning_Task 2
I chose this essay to showcase my competency in relation to Domain 3: Interventions and Instructional Support to Develop Academic Skills because it acknowledges an evidence-based intervention strategy which was selected for a specific case while being mindful of diagnosis and social influences (specifically socio-economic status) that may be impacting school performance. The essay outlines collaboration between the school psychologist, parent, and teachers through in-depth discussion of the FRIENDS intervention and progress monitoring. Moreover, the essay outlines specific goals based on fictional assessment data. This data was analyzed and used in order to select the most appropriate intervention strategy for the client. Thus, this essay, demonstrates my understanding of academic and cognitive assessment, as well as the implementation and evaluation of evidence-based intervention.
