Child and Adolescent Mental Health

Understanding the Nature of Autism
Second Edition
Janice E Janzen, 2002


This comprehensive and updated resource now addresses Autism Spectrum disorders, including Asperger's Syndrome and the various co-occuring conditions. 

The book presents an integrated approach to teaching and intervention and incorporates strategies from recognised models that match the specific needs of each child. One strategy addresses conducting functional behavioural assessments for making individualised programme and placement decisions. 

New and expanded intervention strategies - including the use of computers and videos - help teach early interaction skills. It also contains a new chapter on parents' role in assessment, case studies, checklists and extensive references.
