Here's How to Provide Intervention for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder is a timely resource for speech-language pathologists working with children on the autism spectrum as well as graduate students preparing to work with this demographic. The authors outline a clear explanation of autism spectrum disorder according to the new DSM-5, showing how it affects communication, socialization, behavior, and learning. Furthermore, they review evidence-based practices and provide tools for instructional strategies. This book doesn't set out to provide a recipe for therapy; rather, guidelines to follow and individualize for each patient.

Samia Malik, SLT, Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust,Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists(2014):
"This is a practical guide to providing intervention for children with autism spectrum disorder. Written in a clear and accessible style, it is packed full of useful ideas, tips and advice. The layout and design of the book means you can pick it up at any stage and find helpful information without the need for any prior reading.

Every chapter provides case studies so you can clearly envisage the application of described strategies. However, what makes this resource truly unique is the supplementary DVD. It includes four case studies of children with varying needs. Not only are there video examples showing how to implement therapy ideas, there are also visual resources such as social stories included as Word/PowerPoint documents that can be adapted to suit a client's needs."
