1. Describe how assessment must be adapted to meet the needs of youth. Be specific.
2. The information by the CDC, Pajo and Cohen, and Townsend, Floersch and Findling speak to the social factors in diagnosis and definitions of ‘normal’ behavior and what is appropriate treatment.

How might understanding these factors shape your approach to assessment, intervention, and conceptualization?
