This authoritative book demonstrates how to craft a complete, scientifically grounded, and clinically useful portrait of a child's strengths and difficulties in social behavior, language and communication, intellectual functioning, motor skills, and other key areas of impairment and comorbidity.
Significant progress has been made in assessing children with autism spectrum disorders, but, until now, the field has lacked a single, comprehensive resource that assembles current best practices within a unified assessment framework. This authoritative book demonstrates how to craft a complete, scientifically grounded, and clinically useful portrait of a child's strengths and difficulties in social behavior, language and communication, intellectual functioning, motor skills, and other key areas of impairment and comorbidity. Leading experts illustrate ways in which clinical and school practitioners can integrate data from a variety of sources to improve the accuracy of diagnosis and inform the development of individualized interventions.
"Masterfully crafted and methodically detailed—a comprehensive package for clinicians and school-based student support services personnel. Each chapter provides rich detail regarding the associated features of ASD, and, more importantly, offers best-practice assessment strategies. Practitioners will find the book highly valuable for bridging research to practice, while researchers will appreciate the level of detail. I look forward to incorporating this text into two of my graduate courses."

"In one neat, comprehensive package, here is just about everything you need to know about assessment of autism. Autism is an exceedingly complex disorder and the field is grappling with many questions about how to quantify, qualify, and understand it. The editors have assembled an impressive roster of contributors, who both describe how to conduct assessments and address current issues and debates. This is an outstanding, thorough resource for practitioners, researchers, educators, and students."

"A rich resource for researchers and practitioners involved in the diagnosis and assessment of individuals with ASD. Written in a scholarly yet accessible manner, the book highlights the individuality and humanity of children with autism and provides state-of-the art strategies for assessing multiple dimensions of their functioning. It succeeds in increasing understanding of these complex and intriguing disorders and would be a terrific addition to courses on developmental disabilities."
