With a focus on best practice and the importance of early diagnosis, this book provides a practical and scientifically-based approach to the assessment and diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome and autism spectrum disorder.
This book offers a balance of conceptual, practical and empirical information designed to bridge the research-to-practice gap in identifying, assessing, and treating school-aged children with autism-related conditions. Assessment tools and intervention strategies will support school-based professionals in identifying and assessing young people with high-functioning autism spectrum disorder, developing and implementing classroom-based intervention programs, initiating a dialogue between parents and teachers, accessing community resources and promoting special needs advocacy.
