Mental health professionals and educators are increasingly being asked to evaluate and assess children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) as the number of children with these disorders increases. This timely and important book provides practical guidance on how to organize and conduct assessment activities with a purpose, based on the goals of the evaluation. It features case study material to illustrate test use and clinical assessment for all aspects of psychological assessment. In addition, it covers ASDs with younger/older and high/low functioning individuals. Applied developmental psychologists, child psychologists, school psychologists, as well as special education teachers and other school personnel will benefit from this book.
