Student: Tess Kallmeyer*

Major: Social Work

This paper presents the comprehensive social work assessment and treatment of an eight year old male child in the school setting.  The client struggled with adaptation to classroom expectations, as well as peer interaction.  Following this student for the period of his school year allowed for the collection of data on his development, background, and achievements.  Interventions were implemented for this student, modeled off the Boys and Girls Village Program.  This student was evaluated based upon his academic achievements as well as his ability to work and interact positively with his peers.
