Overview

Finding a way of simultaneously addressing the sensory, motor, emotional, communicative, cognitive, and social needs of children on the autism spectrum can be a real challenge, and choosing from the vast array of options available is a daunting task. This book provides a blueprint for an educational intervention program that is evidence-based, comprehensive in scope, and integrative in its approach.

Specific strategies are presented for developing competencies in areas such as joint attention, sensory integration, motor functioning, impulse control, memory, self-awareness, empathy, problem-solving, social skills, and community engagement. The book also provides useful techniques for dealing with common behavioral problems including toileting delays, temper-tantrums, and eating and sleeping difficulties, amongst many others. Showing that interventions are not only possible but can be really successful, this book will be an invaluable resource for parents and professionals searching for a better way to address the needs of children with autism.
