Special Education Course FINAL RESEARCH PAPER

We have to write a 7 page APA format paper, nothing more nothing less or I lose two letter grades. This paper does not need a title page, name, date or NOTHING. It just needs a reference page with 10 peer-reviewed journal articles NO more than 15 years old on it and the reference page does NOT count in the 7 pages. I need 7 pages WRITTEN and the reference page will be the 8th page. I am going to link you ALL the information to this paper. PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY BEFORE BEGINNING THE PAPER! I am also going to put an EXAMPLE PAPER for you in the files section below. A student from his class wrote the example paper and received an A, so the professor wants everyone’s papers to look like that in order to receive an A. Also, I am going to provide a checklist for you. so after you complete the paper review the checklist to make sure you did EVERYTHING the professor wants. DO NOT Plagiarize!!!! He is going to upload this paper on turnitin so DO NOT plagiarize. Also, NO GRAMMAR MISTAKES! Professor takes off a lot of points for that! DO NOT ADD DIRECT QUOTES, ONLY PARAPHRASE! The professor will fail me if there is ANY direct quotes. Here is ALL the information about the paper (read carefully):

You will write a formal research paper. Formal means it is written in APA style.

You will not do a title page per APA or Running Head. FOLLOW THE STUDENT EXAMPLE EXACTLY. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN HEAVY POINT LOSS.

A well-written paper has some clear markers. First, it is well-organized (has an introduction, headings), is free of grammatical and punctuation errors (more than six will result in a point penalty of 20 points), and indicates that the writer read all the articles and succinctly reported the findings of the journal articles. NOTE: this paper does not have a conclusion. All good papers have a conclusion, but I felt that a conclusion took up too many lines.

Paper organization is as follows (same as student example):

Introduction

Reciprocating Social and Emotional Interaction (main heading)

Description (student example says “Definition, but it should be “Description”) of Social and Emotional Interaction (subheading)

Examples (subheading) Examples are plural so it means more than one example – stick with two examples.

Two Interventions to Improve Social and Emotional Interactions (subheading)

Here is where your journal articles will assist you. What are evidenced-based practices (found in peer-review journals) that address the problem of poor social and emotional interactions? When you do a search for peer-reviewed journal articles, type in “autism” and social and emotional interactions.” Select the journal articles that are fairly recent (nothing older than 15 years).
