About the Course:

This CE course is based on the book “A Best Practice Guide to Assessment and Intervention for Autism and Asperger Syndrome in Schools”. This authoritative, yet accessible award-winning text provides step-by-step guidance for screening, assessing, and educating children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Grounded in the latest research, special features include illustrative case examples, FAQs, quick reference boxes, glossary, and an index to 50 evidence-based best practice recommendations. The book fills a critical void in the autism literature and is an essential resource for practitioners in psychology, general and special education, speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, counseling, social work, and for graduate and pre-service students. Parents, advocates, administrators, and attorneys will also find the content informative and helpful. Highly readable and comprehensive, this text sets the standard for those who want to further their understanding of the identification and treatment of school-age children with ASD.
