Psy 610A Advanced Child Psychopathology Case Summary #1 Janet, 13 years old, has a long history of school problems. She failed first grade, supposedly because her teacher was “mean,” and was removed from a special education classroom after she kept getting into fights with the other students in 3 rd grade. Currently, in a regular-education sixth-grade classroom, Janet is failing reading, barely passing English, arithmetic, and spelling, but doing satisfactory work in art and physical education. Her teacher describes Janet as a “slow learner with a poor memory” and states that Janet doesn’t learn in a group setting and that Janet requires a great deal of individual attention. Janet’s medical history is unremarkable except for a tonsillectomy at age five and an early history of chronic otitis media (middle ear infections). She sat up at 6 months, walked at 12 months, and began talking at 18 months. Examination revealed an open and friendly girl who was very touchy about her academic problems.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
