Summary "A uniquely comprehensive resource for practitioners, this research-based book addresses both the social-emotional and cognitive-academic challenges faced by children and adolescents with high-functioning autism spectrum disorders (HFASD). The author traces these kids' developmental trajectories and explores their distinct combination of strengths and needs. Effective school-based interventions for overcoming the social isolation and learning difficulties often associated with HFASD are reviewed in depth. Appendices include concise descriptions of more than 50 relevant assessment tools, plus a detailed, practical outline of the author's empirically supported social intervention model. E-book purchasers can download and print the tables from the Appendices at the companion Web page."--Provided by the publisher
