Autism Spectrum Disorders from Theory to Practice

Apply the latest ASD theory to assessment and intervention in real-world clinical environments

In Autism Spectrum Disorders from Theory to Practice, a team of experienced interventionists deliver a practical application of modern theory regarding autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) to common, real-world clinical situations. Hands-on guidance is paired with advice on culturally appropriate and responsive practices informed by professionals who collectively have over 40 years of combined speech pathology experience.

The work of special contributors like Dr. Pamela Wiley, who is the Founder and President of the Los Angeles Speech and Language Therapy Center, appears alongside evidence-based ASD intervention instruction that draws from the latest studies and from the authors' assessments and interventions with clients from a diverse range of backgrounds. When combined with the reader's own professional competence, clinical experiences, and continuing education, this book is a powerful resource that will improve patient outcomes.

Autism Spectrum Disorders readers will also find:
* Personal anecdotes from the authors' clinical practices to help illustrate the application of the concepts discussed within
* Active Learning Tasks that educators can use to promote learning activities that encourage direct engagement with the material
* Helpful and illustrative diagrams included throughout the text to help elucidate points and clarify information in each chapter
* Goal Spotlights that provide sample intervention goals practitioners can use with actual clients with autism
* Reflection Letters in which individuals from various perspectives and backgrounds--from autism researchers to developmental psychologists, advocates such as Holly Robinson Peete, and adults thriving with autism--describe their experiences

Autism Spectrum Disorders from Theory to Practice is a useful reference for new and experienced practitioners in the field of autism research, speech-language pathologists, developmental psychologists, adapted physical education teachers, professors, and those affected by ASD in their everyday life.
