"This book provides practitioners with a concise and practical overview of critical evidence-based approaches. It is a well-organized and readable resource that should be required reading for anyone working with people on the autism spectrum." --V. Mark Durand, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, University of South Florida St. Petersburg and Co-Editor, Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions
"In this volume Dr. Luiselli has assembled an impressive breadth of information in a condensed format. Nationally recognized clinicians and scholars provide 27 chapters that distil current knowledge across four large sections. The result allows families and practitioners to survey the evidence-based assessment, instruction and intervention approaches most likely to be helpful for children and adults with ASD."--Rob Horner, Ph.D., Alumni-Knight Professor, Special Education and Director, Educational and Community Supports Research Unit, University of Oregon
"Dr. Luiselli is a master editor who, in this volume, has compiled a rich, well-organized collection of practical tips and suggestions for helping people with autism spectrum disorders. This promises to be a heavily-used guidebook that will prove its worth over and over again. This well-organized volume is a rare and eminently useful contribution to the applied literature. It will be of great value to all professionals and parents concerned with helping people with ASD."--Glen Dunlap, Ph.D., Division of Applied Research and Educational Support, Department of Child and Family Studies, Florida Mental Health Institute, University of South Florida
"This book provides guidance in a number of important areas for practitioners working with individuals with autism. James K. Luiselli is a well known and well respected applied researcher in autism and other developmental disabilities. He has built a career on excellent work in helping adults and children. This book contains sections on assessment, teaching skills, reducing problem behavior, and a 'catch-all' section dealing with important topics such as discrete trial and natural teaching styles, generalization, and parent training, among other topics. The coverage is very comprehensive; thus, practitioners should be able to find most content areas about which they need direction. This guide can help any practitioner experienced in ASD with state-of-the art applications in a host of areas needed for the provision of comprehensive services."--John R. Lutzker, Ph. D., Director, Center for Healthy Development, Georgia State University
