Ideal for preparing SLPs and other clinicians to make sound decisions, this casebook gives readers in-depth, real world demonstrations of today’s evidence-based interventions for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Developed as a companion to the Treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder textbook—but equally useful as a standalone casebook—this resource offers 14 realistic case studies that walk readers through common clinical challenges and help them hone their planning and problem-solving skills.


Aligned with the 14 intervention chapters in the companion text, the case studies each include:

  • A complete profile of the child’s strengths and needs, with a special focus on communication and social skills
  • An overview of assessment practices that inform communication treatment planning
  • A discussion of the clinical problem-solving processes used to identify treatment goals and strategies
  • An intervention plan used to achieve the child’s goals, with details on implementation and modifications
  • A report on the child’s outcomes
  • A set of learning activities to help readers apply their knowledge


A one-of-a-kind practical resource developed by clinical experts, this casebook will help both current and future professionals understand today’s widely used autism interventions—and prepare to implement them effectively in their own practice.


GET THE BUNDLE: Buy this casebook as a bundle with its companion textbook, Treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Second Edition. The new edition of this essential text gives SLPs the foundation they need to evaluate, select, and implement 14 of today’s widely used interventions.
