Wilkinson and contributors make sense of the often conflicting information available and synthesize it in a best-practice guide to screening, assessment, and intervention. It includes procedures to help identify children with ASD using the new DSM-5 symptom criteria and offers essential guidance for assessing a verity of emotional, behavioral, and academic problems. The book provides practitioners with an evidence-based assessment battery which includes tests of cognitive, academic, neuropsychological, and adaptive functioning.
