"This book, written by an internationally recognized 'who's who' of autism spectrum disorder specialists, translates the most recent research in educational and behavioral programming into practical suggestions for therapy and guidance for educational interventions. It will be an invaluable resource for trainees in psychology, education, speech-language pathology, child psychiatry, and many other disciplines, as well as seasoned educators, therapists, and parents seeking the latest information. It will help all of us better meet the needs and capitalize on the talents of this special group of young people."--Sally Ozonoff, PhD, MIND Institute, University of California, Davis
"Children with Asperger syndrome have unique behavioral and educational problems arising from their paradoxical combination of strengths and difficulties. Readers of this book will learn not only about the nature and range of these difficulties, but also what to do about them. The editors and authors take a pragmatic stance: although much remains to be learned about Asperger syndrome, a lot of practical knowledge has been accumulated and is presented here in accessible form. Teachers, in particular, will find enlightening information about meeting the special needs of students with the disorder."--Uta Frith, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and Department of Psychology, University College London, UK
"This timely volume offers a very helpful summary of diagnostic issues, management approaches for behavior and learning difficulties, and the provision of services in educational settings. Dr. Prior has assembled a diverse, international group of contributors who address the many needs of individuals with Asperger syndrome. This book will be of great value to teachers and clinicians alike."--Fred Volkmar, MD, Yale University School of Medicine
