• Format: APA format. • Length of Pamphlet: 2 sides, front and back • Basic Components to Include: o Introduction/problem o Solution/options o Conclusion • References: Use at least 10 peer-reviewed references. All citations in your paper should be listed in APA style in the reference list and all listed references should be cited in the paper. Examples of citing a book and a journal article are provided below: o Example 1: Heward, W.L. (2003). Exceptional children: An introduction to special education. Upper Saddle River, New Jersey: Prentice-Hall. o Example 2: Taylor, T. (2006). Social deficits:
Comparing children with mental retardation, emotional disorders, and learning disabilities. Journal of Special Education, 40(4), 144-160. • Citation/Writing Reminders o Paraphrasing: Ideas taken from other sources must be referenced in the paper with the source clearly identified and the year published (Koegel, 2006). o Quoting: “Word-for-word language taken from other sources must be placed in quotation marks and the source must be identified” (Vernon, 2006, p. 44).
o People-first language: try to avoid language that equates a person with their condition (e.g., the disabled, the handicapped) or has negative overtones (e.g., cancer victim). For example, as a general rule, “person with a disability” & “families of children with autism” are neutral and preferred forms in most parts of the field.
