The first volume dedicated solely to its topic, Interventions for Autism Spectrum Disorders provides a comprehensive overview of programs currently in use. Contributors explore programs focusing on long-term outcomes, home- and classroom-based strategies, resilience training for parents, and pharmacological management of symptoms. Background chapters review issues in reliability and validity of interventions and evaluating treatment effectiveness. And an especially cogent chapter discusses the centrality of treatment integrity to best practice. Comprehensive programs and targeted interventions covered include:
The Early Start Denver Model for young children.
The TEACCH program for children, adults, and families.
The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) and CARD eLearning.
PROGress: a program for remediating and expanding social skills.
Evidence-based strategies for repetitive behaviors and sensory issues.
Self-regulation strategies for students with autism spectrum disorders.
Interventions for Autism Spectrum Disorders is an essential resource for researchers, professionals/practitioners, and clinicians in a wide array of fields, including clinical child, school, and developmental psychology; child and adolescent psychiatry; education; rehabilitation medicine/therapy; social work; and pediatrics.
