I’m pleased to announce the creation of a new Linkedin group, The AUTISM BOOKSHELF. The objective of this group is to advocate, educate, and inform by providing a selective, comprehensive, and objective review of books and articles dealing with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) that will meet members’ informational needs. This includes a guide to the books we think are most deserving of your attention, links to relevant sites, including book review and publishers' sites from around the world and our own recommended list of ASD “best practice” resources. This group also provides a forum to discuss up-to-date information on scientifically validated assessment and treatment options for children with ASD. Created to be a practical and useful resource, autism bookshelf offers essential information for psychologists, speech/language pathologists, teachers, counselors, advocates, attorneys, special education professionals, and parents. We hope you will join us in sharing publications, resources, and information that present evidence-based strategies and tools for assessing and supporting children with ASD, and for connecting and partnering with families and other autism professionals.
