For courses in Autism Spectrum Disorders or as a perfect supplement to a course in special education where ASD is addressed and given special attention to, or in psychology or communication disorders courses addressing the education of students with disabilities.

Autism Spectrum Disorders: From Theory to Practice provides the need for a comprehensive text on the subject of ASD, thoroughly discussing the cause, characteristics, and approaches by theoretical perspective used by educators. Drawing from her classroom experience, Laura Hall explains the communication and social and relationship issues faced by individuals with autism spectrum disorders and presents educators with best practices and programs for increasing academic achievement. In her newest book, the author guides educators in identifying, placing, and instructing students through real-life classroom and family cases. She includes strategies to determine the cause of ASD, a step-by-step guide for assessment, and evidence-based approaches to educate students through examination of the major theoretical perspectives–applied behavior analysis, developmental and social-relational, and the TEACCH approach. Furthermore, the text addresses: the use of evidence-based practices in the education of individuals with ASD mandated by the laws, IDEA 2004 and NCLB; approaches that take into account families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds; applied behavior analysis; and working collaboratively with families and building communities of practice. This new and unique text will not only describe the most common practices implemented for learners with ASD, but will identify those that are evidence-based, and provide the best suggestions for future research in the field.

  • I was shopping for a book for my graduate class on ASD...and here it was! Great price, great condition & I received it in plenty of time for my first assignment! Thanks Amazon!

  • absolutely wonderful product . highly recommended to all. very easy to use with simple instructions. a good gift for you or someone you love.

  • Great!!!

  • Dr. Hall has provided an excellent resource for professionals and parents. This book covers classification and assessment issues, as well as approaches to treatment. As a behavior analyst, Dr. Hall has devoted two chapters on applied behavior analysis. The book promotes the importance of evidence-based practices. Practical information is given, along with research and theoretical background. With so many weak books on autism being published at this critical time, I was delighted to discover such a well written and thoughtful resource as this. I really believe this is a "must have!"

  • As a professor who teaches several courses in the area of Autism Spectrum Disorders, the Hall text is an excellent resource for an initial course in the area of ASD. 8/10 students in my introductory course openly indicate their satisfaction with the text and how they will use it as a resource outside the realm of the course. I enjoy reading it over and over.

  • This is an incredibly helpful resource for new and experienced educators. Theories are explained clearly, and the examples are useful. I highly reccommend this book to anyone working with individuals with autism in any capacity.

  • Although some of the chapters may be academic, the book really helped to identify what is and isn't autism and ways to deal with it.
