Each exercise is a case study regarding a child with a specific psychopathology. Your job is to assume that you are a clinical psychologist specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of children. A colleague of yours has sent you a summary of his/her evaluation of a patient in hopes that you will provide a second opinion as to the correct diagnosis for the child and provide other relevant information regarding this diagnosis. Your diagnosis can confirm the original diagnosis and/or make a new diagnosis. You are writing your information to be given to the parent of the child. Therefore, you should be careful to fully explain concepts such that someone outside of the area of abnormal child psychology would understand. (DO NOT assume that you are writing this paper directly to the teacher must be written in a professional manner & tone.)
