    Co-written by 11 professionals in the field of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), this is a significant and essential reference work designed to help parents, educators, and therapists evaluate numerous intervention and treatment methods for children with ASD.

    This essential resource was developed to respond directly to the difficulty school professionals and families face in selecting and applying appropriate interventions and treatments for the children in their care. The information is presented in a straightforward format, practical for finding answers to complex questions, and includes:

    • A description of the intervention or treatment.

    • Reported benefits and effects associated with its use.

    • A synthesis of how the outcomes relate to individuals with ASD.

    • Potential costs and risks.

    Each chapter describes a variety of interventions and treatments, and the authors provide their analysis of the literature as it relates to each method.

    The book is divided into five broad treatment categories, including:

    • Interpersonal relationship interventions

    • Skill-based interventions
    • Cognitive interventions

    • Physiological, biological, and neurological interventions

    • Miscellaneous treatment methods.

    The authors rate each intervention as either scientifically based; a promising practice; a practice with limited supporting information; or a treatment that is not recommended. (Softcover; 247 pages.)
