Overview. This is a progress report on the status of a treatment guidebook to be handed out at a cerebral palsy program.
Letter format. Notice that a straight business-letter format is used for this progress report. The entire contents of the progress report is presented within the business letter—headings, lists, tables, everything.
Progress discussion. In this section, the writer provides detail on the progress she has made on the two topics to be included in the handbook. Notice how the background section and the treatment section are subheadings under each of the main headings—"Work Completed," "Current Work," and "Future Work."
Conclusion—overall appraisal As typical with progress reports, this one ends with an overall appraisal of the project followed by the signature concluding the letter.
Outline. The writer includes an outline of the handbook she will create for this project. Because her "deliverable" is a handbook to be used by CP patients and family, it's very important for the client to be able to see the outline and thus evaluate her plans for the handbook.
