Diagnosis and Treatment of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders examines the current available research regarding screening, diagnosis, and treatment of children with a known or suspected autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The authors provide an overview of the screening process for students with suspected developmental delays; discuss ASD-specific diagnostic instruments and rating scales, ASD subtypes, and cognitive assessment; and describe various treatment approaches, answering vital questions such as “When should intervention begin?” “Who should intervene?” “Where should the intervention take place?” “What should be taught?” and “How should we intervene?”

Diagnosis and Treatment of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders is part of the new The Practical Strategies Series in Autism Education, which offers timesaving books on critical topics for educating students with autism spectrum disorders. The seven books in this series are filled with practical information and advice, thus making them an ideal resource for classroom teachers, preservice teachers, and graduate students.
