Reflecting tremendous gains over the past decade in our understanding of the causes of autism, "Clinical Manual for the Treatment of Autism" meets the increasing need for clear, up-to-date, and evidence-based treatment. Internationally known researchers - who are also skilled in treating patients with autism - share treatment approaches they have either developed or thoroughly tested for safety and efficacy. The book describes in a straightforward manner how to diagnose autism, recognizing that patients may vary greatly in intelligence, language ability, disruptive behavior, and presence of comorbid disorders. It outlines the appropriate instruments to use for particular patients, providing examples and guidelines for evaluation and testing of individuals of all ages and levels of functioning, with a focus on initial diagnostic evaluation. It then evaluates the appropriate role of various medications for specific target symptoms and individuals. "Clinical Manual for the Treatment of Autism" is an essential resource for a broad range of professionals, including pediatricians, psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists, educators, and behavioral, speech, and occupational therapists. It is a state-of-the-art compendium of treatments that will help advance the care that people with autism receive.
