Reviews

"This concise book provides a comprehensive and very readable introduction to best practices in the assessment and treatment of ASD in school settings. It succinctly informs the professional reader about the theoretical and research foundations underlying its many suggestions for practice, which are further enhanced by the liberal use of vignettes." - PsycCRITIQUES(R)

"This book thoroughly integrates current research and theory as well as relevant practice in school settings and will allow practitioners to further their conceptual understanding of assessing and treating ASD." - Canadian Journal of School Psychology

"An excellent and accessible synthesis of the evidence base for school-based interventions in ASD and a comprehensive look at the psychological profile of the child with autism." - The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health

"Wilkinson has fashioned a very good book for ASD school practicioners, with commendable interdisciplinary appeal and a much needed dose of empiricism!" - New England Psychologist

"Wilkinson has put together a book that is quite readable and interesting. Difficult concepts are explained clearly but concisely. The style and quality of writing is consistently good across chapters. A strength of this book is the breadth of coverage. The authors meet the goal of providing professionals with information on ASD, screening, assessment, and interventions for the classroom." --Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment

"Overall, Wilkinson's text is like a guided tour of the parallel yet overlapping worlds of school and clinical practice, which many of our patients and families navigate daily. It will contribute to the reader's knowledge of ASDs and more broadly of how schools accommodate and work with special-needs children." --Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
