This invaluable, two-volume reference work brings readers up to date on the abundance of research conducted and published since the previous edition. Providing a comprehensive review of all information presently available about autism and pervasive developmental disorders, this set explores findings and clinical experience from a number of related disciplines such as psychiatry, psychology, neurobiology, pediatrics, and more. The Handbook covers descriptive and diagnostic characteristics, biological contributions, intervention techniques, as well as legal and social issues. The Fourth Edition includes new research on genetics, neurobiology, and brain imaging, as well as new coverage of sophisticated methods of screening and assessment.
