Synopsis

Quickly acquire the knowledge and skills you need to utilize the varied assessments frequently used in evaluating autism spectrum disorders

With both the detection and awareness of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) on the rise, there is an urgent need for an increasing number of professionals to not only learn about the nature and course of the various autism spectrum disorders, but also to know how to identify, assess, and diagnose the presence of these disorders. Essentials of Autism Spectrum Disorders Evaluation and Assessment addresses the main domains of assessment, defines the purpose of the assessment, suggests test instruments, and discusses the unique clinical applications of each instrument to the diagnosis of ASD.

Like all the volumes in the Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.

Providing an in-depth look at ASD evaluation and assessment, this straightforward book includes samples of integrated reports from comprehensive model diagnostic evaluations and prepares clinical and school psychologists, as well as speech and language pathologists, to effectively evaluate and assess ASD.
