This is a highly readable book filled with best practice recommendations. It also includes reprints of a number of useful tools for screening and assessment. While the title suggests use in schools, clinicians in other settings will also find this text valuable.

This best practice guide offers a balance of conceptual, practical and empirical information designed to bridge the research-to-practice gap in identifying, assessing, and treating school-aged children with autism-related conditions. Assessment tools and intervention strategies will support school-based professionals in: identifying and assessing young people with high-functioning autism spectrum conditions; developing and implementing classroom-based intervention programs; initiating a dialogue between parents and teachers; accessing community resources; and, promoting special needs advocacy. This authoritative, yet accessible guide will appeal to teachers, counselors, psychologists, social work practitioners and graduate students, as well as parents.
