Leading experts demonstrate how to craft a scientifically grounded profile of each child's strengths and difficulties, make a formal diagnosis, and use assessment data to guide individualized intervention in clinical and school settings. Chapters review state-of-the-art instruments and approaches for evaluating specific areas of impairment in ASD and co-occurring emotional and behavioral disorders. Considerations in working with children of different ages are highlighted. With a primary focus on children, several chapters also address assessment of adolescents and adults. Key Words/Subject Areas: autism spectrum disorders, ASD, Asperger syndrome, Aspergers, DSM5, DSMV, assessments, tests, psychological testing, neuropsychological examination, early intervention, early identification, clinical evaluation, differential diagnosis, developmental disabilities, developmental disorders, children, adolescents, toddlers, infants, neurodevelopmental disorders, screening approaches, measures, diagnostic criteria, DSMIV Audience: Clinical and school psychologists, neuropsychologists, child psychiatrists, special educators, speech-language pathologists, social workers, and counselors; also of interest to pediatricians."-- Provided by publisher.
