The fourth edition of Autism Spectrum Disorders: Identification, Education, and Treatment continues the mission of its predecessors: to present a comprehensive, readable, and up-to-date overview of the field of autism; one that links research, theory, and practice in ways that are accessible to students, practitioners, and parents. During the last decade, autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have emerged as the fastest growing developmental disability, and, in response to the dramatic increase in diagnoses, diagnostic criteria in the newly published DSM-5 are significantly different than they were in the DSM IV-R. The structure, content, and format of Autism Spectrum Disorders, 4th Edition have been revised to accommodate changes in the field and to illuminate the current state of the art in the study of autism. New information on early identification, transition education from adolescence through to adulthood, neurobiological research, and technology-based solutions is included.

Technology for Learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders provides readers with an in-depth look at the characteristics of learners with ASD and explains how different forms of technology can be used to create learning opportunities for autistic students. The book is both academic and practical to appeal to multiple audiences: academicians, parents, teachers and therapists. Currently, there is scant literature speaking to the types of academic activities that should be developed and used to help children with ASD gain skills in academic areas: reading, writing, effective communication and mathematics. This book fills that void by including sample academic activities, explaining strategies for working with children diagnosed with ASD and examining ways a variety of technology tools can be used. All of the activities are visually appealing and they have been used with learners diagnosed with ASD.

The strides made by very young children who have experienced intensive treatment are often impressive. In the past 15 years, the treatment outcome literature has focused primarily on the substantial gains that preschool-age children with autism can achieve when provided with early, intensive programming. However, children served by preschool programs grow up and create a demand for the development of school-age programs. This book focuses on programs designed for youngsters who continue to need special services of some kind, whether in the public schools or in a specialized program for children with autism. The same editors who first brought you Preschool Education Programs for Children with Autism a decade ago have gathered nine contributors to describe their specific programs for school-aged children with autism. These programs were selected because of their reputation among professionals and parents. The programs are urban, suburban, and rural; private, public, and university-based; long-standing and relatively new. The array of program models represented in School-Age Education Programs for Children with Autism will give the reader an appreciation of how one may adapt services to the setting in which one functions.

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) has received considerable educational, research, medical and media attention the past ten years. Yet the condition was first described more than a hundred years ago. Due to the disorder being confused with childhood schizophrenia, there was a lack of definitive attention by special educators, medical professionals and mental health clinicians to advance parameters related to: causes; prevalence; identification and diagnosis; education and treatment. Positively, this confusion changed starting in the 1980s with the clarification of the differences between these disorders with the 1980 publication of the” Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders” (DSMIII). Soon after, the 1990 federal legislation “Individuals with Disabilities Education Act” recognized the disorder as a disability category eligible for special education services. Both of these events lead to an explosion of information related to: finding causes; accurate identification and diagnosis; best educational practices; and social, emotional, and behavioral treatments. Even with this explosion in the body of knowledge concerned with this disorder, much more needs to be learned and discovered. The successful use of this body of knowledge requires that accurate information be provided to educators, parents, clinicians, medical professionals, and mental health professionals to counter misinformation that exists among the general public, educators and clinical professionals. This is the primary purpose of “Autism Spectrum Disorders: Inclusive Community for the 21st Century”. It is accomplished by chapters on: the delineation of a blueprint for systems of care for persons with ASD and their families; a model to assist professionals in tackling the challenge of developing employability for individuals with high functioning ASD; best practice and research guidelines that lead to an affirmative ASD diagnosis; a comprehensive and current synopsis of genetic factors associated with ASD; adjustment challenges that may be present for a sibling of an individual with ASD; a comprehensive description of an innovative communitybased clinic that provides services needed by Individuals with ASD to meet their social, behavioral, educational and mental health needs; and effective treatment strategies and techniques that can be utilized by parents and educators to work effectively with children who have ASD. The chapters are written by researchers, clinicians, business professionals, and university professors who have an extensive knowledge of ASD. The contents of the book are an excellent reference for special education teachers, school psychologists, practicing mental health clinicians, and parents and family members of children and adults with ASD.
