Overview

A new way of thinking about treatment planning to support children with autism spectrum disorders

Grounded in solid theory, Treatment Planning for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: An Individualized, Problem-Solving Approachhelps educators and therapists who work with children with autism spectrum disorders make sense of this confusing, often conflicting, and rapidly evolving clinical and research treatment landscape.

Rooted in evidence-based practices, Chedd and Levine provide a 7-step dynamic treatment planning process. The book shows how a variety of current interventions and treatments can be incorporated into this process and includes applications of different approaches for tackling different problems. The nine illustrative case vignettes cover a wide variety of ages, developmental challenges, learning and social profiles, and school and family circumstances.

With a firm commitment to and focus on the child’s best interests as well as family needs and preferences, Treatment Planning for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders offers professionals new possibilities for enhancing the quality of life for children with ASDs.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
★ 
Coauthors Chedd (education consultant & licensed mental health counselor) and Levine (psychology, Harvard Medical Sch.) provide caretakers and therapists with a comprehensive, evidence-based evaluative tool to identify, assess, implement, and revisit the effectiveness of therapy practice for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). They outline a seven-step system that may be implemented regardless of which type of therapy (applied behavior analysis [ABA], PlayTime, etc.) is currently being used and in situations in which multiple treatments are taking place. They also address a method for determining the specific aspects of treatment protocols affecting change in behavior. Different from texts such as Lesson Plan à La Carte: Integrated Planning for Students with Special Needs by Valerie Paradiz and others, this work is not specific to an educational setting and may be implemented at home and school and in other environments. In addition to explaining the methodology behind the practice, Chedd and Levine support their practicum with examples of implementation and case studies.

Verdict An essential book for treatment providers of all therapeutic backgrounds, laid out in an extremely digestible manner and supported with practical examples. Highly recommended for all libraries.—Victoria Frerichs, Prescot, UK
