  • Common forms of vulnerable adult and elderly neglect.
  • Warning signs of vulnerable adult and elderly abuse.
  • Legal and ethical considerations for reporting abuse and/or neglect of vulnerable adults and the elderly.

** In addition, include slides for a title, introduction, conclusion, and references (four slides minimum). **

**Please remember to include detailed speaker notes under your slides. These should include exactly what you would say if you were presenting this in front of a class or at a professional conference. The assignment details indicate speaker notes should be a minimum of 100 words. However, in most cases, you will need significantly more (at least 150 words) to assure you have answered the questions thoroughly.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
