  • Write a 1-2 page memo to the principal regarding Anne. You are allowed to take one of two positions.
    1. Anne is the victim of abuse/neglect.
      • If you take this position, you must list the rationale including signs/symptoms, parental concerns, and contacts with Anne.
    2. Anne is not the victim of abuse/neglect.
      • If you take this position, you must list the rationale including mitigating factors, parental strengths, and contacts with Anne.
