A uniquely comprehensive resource for practitioners, this research-based book addresses both the social-emotional and cognitive-academic challenges faced by children and adolescents with high-functioning autism spectrum disorders (HFASD). The author discusses DSM-5 criteria, traces these kids' developmental trajectories, and explores their distinct combination of strengths and needs. Effective school-based interventions for overcoming the social isolation and learning difficulties often associated with HFASD are reviewed in depth. Appendices include concise descriptions of more than 50 relevant assessment tools, plus a detailed, practical outline of the author's empirically supported social intervention model.Main Curriculum Topics for CBE Dyadic Intervention (Bauminger, 2002, 2007b) TABLE BZ. ...
