I’m pleased to announce the release of my new book, “A Best Practice Guide to Assessment and Intervention for Autism and Asperger Syndrome,” from Jessica Kingsley Publishers. I hope practitioners will find it to be a valuable resource and practical guide to the screening, assessment, and intervention for school-age children with autism spectrum disorders.
