Publisher Comments:

Therapists play a crucial role in helping children and their families as they navigate the often stormy course of living with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). As cases of autism are increasingly diagnosed, the number of therapists with specialized training cannot keep pace. What is the clinician without prior experience with this disability to do when considering working with a child on the autism spectrum? This "start here" book--a practical beginner's guide to ASD for therapists--provides the answer. Without getting bogged down in the complexity of the disorder or attempting to turn practitioners into autism specialists, it points therapists--novices and seasoned alike--in the right direction so they're better equipped to provide support. Because autism can manifest in so many different ways, no cookie-cutter treatment exists and therapists need to be conversant with the basics, from assessment and treatment approaches to common therapeutic issues that can arise. This book serves as an invaluable road map. is an important therapist's guide representing an all-encompassing approach to working not only with children and their parents, but also with their siblings, family members, and those in the community who are involved in their lives. Ultimately, this book provides a reassuring anchor for any clinician new to treating this disability as well as for those who are seeking alternative approaches to their ongoing work with children diagnosed with ASD.

Synopsis:

A practical, hands-on guide for working with children diagnosed with high functioning autism spectrum disorders.

Synopsis:

This book is a guide and support for professionals—particularly those who have not dealt with this issue very much—for working with children and parents dealing with high functioning autism. 

The skilled therapist has a crucial role to play in helping these children and their families to navigate what often will be a stormy course. Viewing ASD as a social communicative disorder that responds to specific cognitive behavioral interventions, this book provides not only sound background and information on the use of tried-and-true therapeutic interventions, but also offers concrete tools that can be used in conjunction with therapy to help more clearly define the issues and be prepared for potentially difficult encounters.

It emphasizes an all-encompassing approach to working not only with the children and their parents, but also with their siblings and other family members, as well as others in the community who are involved in the lives of these children. Checklists, descriptives, and forms designed as pull-out sections can be used as homework assignments to be completed and discussed within individual therapy sessions with parents, children, and families alike.

The book will provide an anchor for any therapist facing this issue for the first time in their practice, as well as for those who want a solid foundation to map out a course of treatment.

Synopsis:

So many patients present with ASDs, where should a therapist begin? With many factors to consider—family of origin, behavioral and psychological issues, basic assessment—establishing therapeutic goals can be overwhelming. This book provides essential forms and explanations for navigating early treatment, emphasizing family engagement.
