You have not seen any improvement in Sonia’s speech. Sonia is now exhibiting challenging behaviors

You have not seen any improvement in Sonia’s speech. Sonia is now exhibiting challenging behaviors. She is pinching other children and sometimes will bite them. You have been observing her and keeping a running record of the number of times she bites or pinches, the time the behavior occurs, and what happened immediately before the behavior. You asked mom if you could have a conference with her and dad. Mom announced Dad was gone on business and she handles everything anyway. A time is set up to talk. You will provide the data of the behaviors to show mom. You plan on asking mom to sign a consent so you can talk to a person from your local area education agency to come and observe Sonia.

In a 3 – 5 page paper, address the following:

  • Describe the environment you would set up in your classroom for Sonia.

  • What adaptations would you make?

  • After researching speech delays, what techniques will you use when working with Sonia in your classroom?

Use APA formatting for your paper. Include at least one in-text citation from your text, readings or additional research. In addition, include a title page and a reference page. For more information on APA guidelines, refer to the APA guide in the Rasmussen library.
