Editors Note As autism rates, and clinicians' ability to assess and diagnose the disorder. continue to rise, practitioners, school counselors, and other community professionals search for resources on how to help children and their parents or caregivers effectively manage it. This book will serve as a key tool in their arsenal. Drawing from her work at the Yale Child Study Center, Koenig presents a unique, multi-faceted autism treatment manual that emphasizes tailoring interventions to each child's personality and strengths. Taking a holistic approach, she explains how critical it is for kids not just to learn new social skills that fit their individual needs, but be able to meaningfully integrate them into a range of day-to-day situations, from the classroom to the lunchroom to the dinner table at home. Building their ?social repertoire? in this way, she argues, is key to effective autism treatment. For clinicians, school counselors, educators, speech pathologists, school administrators, parents, and all those who work with kids on the autism spectrum, this manual is an invaluable resource. A sophisticated yet accessible guide, it addresses how to understand the complexity of teaching social skills, how to design intervention programs that take kids' own aptitudes and needs into account, and how to weave the skills into their daily social vocabulary so they're more likely to employ them outside of the therapy room.
