To work effectively with individuals who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD), SLPs and other practitioners need in-depth knowledge on choosing and implementing interventions for communication and social challenges. The second edition of this bestselling textbook gives professionals the foundation they need to evaluate and compare today’s widely used interventions—and determine which ones will promote the best outcomes for the people they serve.


The newest volume in the respected Communication and Language Intervention Series, this accessible text combines the expertise of more than 30 top autism authorities across multiple disciplines and specialties, including psychology, speech-language pathology, early intervention, special education, and AAC. Readers will get a thorough introduction to 14 evidence-based interventions, complete with key details on each intervention’s theoretical and empirical basis, components, practical requirements, applications for both children and adults, and considerations for children from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Twelve video clips (available for streaming) illustrate the interventions in action, and highly relevant learning activities prepare SLPs and other practitioners to make sound decisions in scenarios they’re likely to encounter in the field.


WHAT’S NEW:

  • New chapter on assessment for treatment planning and progress monitoring
  • New chapter on language and communication strengths and challenges often seen in children with ASD
  • New in-depth profiles of three interventions not covered in the last edition: the Early Start Denver Model, The SCERTS® Model, and Social Skills Interventions
