Summary

"The book begins by presenting essential background knowledge, including the latest information on the prevalence, diagnosis, and subtypes of ASD. The uses and limitations of standardized autism scales are reviewed, and developmental considerations in assessment are discussed. Emphasizing the importance of integrating data from a variety of sources, chapters describe instruments and approaches for evaluating specific areas of impairment." "Also included is a chapter on school-based assessment, which presents exemplary practices for targeting learning and behavior difficulties in the classroom. Many concrete examples and practical pointers are featured throughout the volume. Special topics include how to communicate findings to parents, strategies for avoiding under- and overdiagnosis, and alternative and cutting-edge assessment tools. While the primary focus is on children, several of the chapters address issues in working with adolescents and adults." "This book belongs on the desks of clinical and school psychologists, neuropsychologists, child psychiatrists, special educators, pediatricians, and other child health and education professionals. Graduate students in these fields will find it a unique, highly useful text."--BOOK JACKET.
