Synopsis

With the increased number of children being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders, parents and professionals are in search of materials that provide information theat will enable them to better understand affected children. While in the past individuals who were diagnosed had limited verbal and intellectual skills, newly diagnosed children often have good language skills and even areas of giftedness. This A-to-Z work contains original entries on the topic of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Entries include facts about disabilities, personal and historic perspectives, interventions, assessments, educational methods, trusted internet resources, and national organizations. The work outlines the contributions of founding researchers and other professionals and includes personal perspectives from individuals with ASD and their parents. It also includes lesson plans that can be implemented in a home, school, or community setting. No other such definitive resource exists that provides both educational and practical information related to ASD.

Brenda Smith Myles is Professor at the Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence at the University of Kansas. She writes and speaks internationally on Asperger Syndrome and autism. Terri Cooper Swanson is an Autism Spectrum Disorder consultant and doctoral student at the University of Kansas. Jeanne Holverstott is an autism specialist. Megan Moore Duncan is a freelance project coordinator, writer, and speaker.
