Part A Screening Report and Part B Intervention Plan:
Over a 3 week period you will develop a screening outcome report and appendices related to documentation from your fieldwork. The screening report will be submitted for marking, returned to you with suggested edits you need to make before being resubmitted and sent to the facility for distribution to staff and parents. You will need to obtain prior written consent from the child’s parents or legal guardian to participate in the screening and any planned intervention.
The Screening Report and Appendices will inform the development of the Part B intervention plan. You will use templates supplied on Moodle for both the Screening Report and Intervention Plan. Appendices: You will be provided with age appropriate copies of the ASQ-3 tool to record your observations and scoring. You will use the TOES template from the e-text reference available through the library.
Part A Screening Report Content will include:
1. A brief description of the facility you visited- physical environment, the culture and values of centre including expectations on children. (up to 75 words)
2. An occupational profile for a child in the facility including the child’s approximate chronological age in years and months (500 words). This profile will include
The child’s areas of strengths as identified by the teacher, parent, child, and from your completion of the ASQ-3.
Any identified areas of concern from the teacher, parent, child, or identified as needing monitoring or follow up in the ASQ-3.
3. Summarise what the child’s ASQ-3 score means in relation to their expected level of participation and development. (75 words)
4. Correctly identify which of the 3 follow up action options on the report template are relevant for this child
You will need to gather information from a range of sources to complete this task. Ensure you present the information in an objective and factual manner. The screening report must have an overall Flesch-Kincaid readability level of Grade 6 or lower. This requires a score of <7.0. To lower a high readability score- one idea, one sentence; use short sentences; use words with fewer syllables; use dot points.
Appendix 1 will contain (not for distribution to fieldwork host):
A completed consent form from the child’s legal guardian
The completed ASQ-3 forms and scores.
Relevant comments or additional observations in the ASQ-3 age specific templates to help justify your scoring.
Child details accurately reported on the ASQ-3 first page and signed and dated scoring summary sheet.
Evidence of your screening report Flesch-Kincaid readability level which must be less than 6.0.
References for at least 2 professional sources that support your interpretation of the ASQ-3 results.
The reference for the ASQ-3 screening tool
Appendix 2 will contain (not for distribution to fieldwork host):
The completed TOES form with clear comments about your observations justifying every rating.
The reference for the TOES publication source
Part B Intervention Plan: (1000 words± 10%)
You will use the information from the screening outcome report to develop a tailored five X 60 minute session plan for intervention with the child. The plan will be submitted for marking, returned to you with suggested changes you need to make before implementation with a child at fieldwork in weeks 7-11.
1. Use the information you gather from the TOES (Parham & Fazio, 2008, p. 81) to analyse the physical, social and cultural supports and barriers to occupational performance present in the context. Include your reasoning why you think these factors supported or hindered the child’s performance. (100 words)
2. Complete information in a table that clearly outlines each of the five sessions you aim to carry out with the child. Provide details for each activity, the duration, resources (spaces, equipment, support) and preparation needed. Grade activities to anticipate increased performance over time. Provide evidence that supports your choices. (600 words)
3. Reflect on any knowledge and skills you still need to develop in relation to working with children. The knowledge gaps you identify here should relate to the priorities for goals you write in the table below. (150 words)
4. Write 2 SMART goals for your own learning to improve your knowledge or skills. (50 words)
5. For each goal, write 2 realistic, achievable and relevant strategies. Your strategies will clearly describe the steps and actions you will take to achieve your learning goals. (100 words)
