Project involves organizing information into a resource file that will be especially helpful to you in addressing one or more topics. These topics can be anything around which you would like to have information that is more current. Some examples include how to deal with problem behavior, how to access the government benefits to which you are entitled, how to help your child make friends, how to help your extended family and friends understand the nature of your child’s special needs, or how to prepare a church school program to accommodate to your child’s special needs. Again, the topic can be whatever is important to you—it does not need to be restricted to this list alone. The student will respond to your priorities for topics and for the type of information (research, stories from other families, books and manuals, tips sheets) that you would find most helpful.
1. Choose five topics that relate to your chosen family and/or your current school assignment.
2. For those five topics, find five different sources of information regarding the topic.
a. You may use web sites from organizations, school districts, etc. You may not use Wikpedia or similar sources. For example, if choosing the topic of behavioral issues, Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders would be an appropriate web site.
b. Include specific information about the web site such as the purpose and history of the organization, and the URL must be included.
c. Each of those five different sources must include 4-5 specific examples of how this is applicable.
