A free preview of the award-winning book A Best Practice Guide to Assessment and Intervention for Autism and Asperger Syndrome in schools is now available. Filling a critical void in the autism literature, this authoritative yet accessible book provides psychologists, educators, support professionals, advocates, and parents with a best practice guide to screening, assessment, and intervention for school-age children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Grounded in the latest research, special features include illustrative case examples and an index to 50 evidence-based best practice recommendations. This book also makes an ideal text for graduate-level training courses in psychology and special education, and is certain to become a widely used resource that will meet the needs of both experienced practitioners and those new to the field.
Diane Adreon, Associate Director of the University of Miami-Nova Southeastern University Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (UM-NSU CARD) and co-author of Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence: Practical Solutions for School Success, comments that “Dr. Lee Wilkinson has produced a well-written, user-friendly, comprehensive guide to the assessment and intervention of students with ASD. School district administrators, attorneys, educators and psychologists will want to have this guide available to them as a resource on ‘best practice’ in the field of ASD.” Diane Twachtman-Cullen, Editor-in-Chief of Autism Spectrum Quarterly, calls the book “a landmark contribution destined to become a classic in the field of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs)” and writes, “Dr. Wilkinson has made an enormous contribution to the field by comprehensively and systematically illuminating not only what needs to be done, but also how to go about doing it.”
A Best Practice Guide was honored with a gold medal in the 2011 Next Generation Book Awards Education/Academic Category and finalist awards for the 2011 National Association for Special Educational Needs (NASEN) Educational Needs/Academic Book of the Year and 2010 National Best Book Awards. It is available in print and e-book editions.
