A new way of thinking about treatment planning to support children with autism spectrum disorders Grounded in solid theory, Treatment Planning for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: An Individualized, Problem-Solving Approachhelps educators and therapists who work with children with autism spectrum disorders make sense of this confusing, often conflicting, and rapidly evolving clinical and research treatment landscape. Rooted in evidence-based practices, Chedd and Levine provide a 7-step dynamic treatment planning process. The book shows how a variety of current interventions and treatments can be incorporated into this process and includes applications of different approaches for tackling different problems. The nine illustrative case vignettes cover a wide variety of ages, developmental challenges, learning and social profiles, and school and family circumstances. With a firm commitment to and focus on the child s best interests as well as family needs and preferences, Treatment Planning for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders offers professionals new possibilities for enhancing the quality of life for children with ASDs.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Treatment Planning for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: An Individualized, Problem-Solving Approach "In the complex and challenging world of Autism Spectrum Disorders, this book offers a welcome, needed and thoroughly useful approach to planning treatment, whatever the setting, resources or problems. Chedd and Levine have managed to create a guide for educators, therapists and parents that is all at once practical and relevant, insightful and thought-provoking." ?Richard Bromfield, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School, Author, Embracing Asperger's "After introducing best practices for intervention in autism, Chedd and Levine present vivid case studies that bring alive the concept of matching methodologies and techniques to the widely diverse needs of individuals on the autism spectrum. My highest recommendation for anyone wishing to learn more about supporting those with autism." ?Stephen M. Shore, Ed.D., Assistant Professor of Special Education, Adelphi University; Internationally renowned author, consultant, and presenter on issues related to autism, Individual on the autism spectrum "Chedd and Levine make clear the foundations of Evidence Based Practice: vetting relevant research and using clinical judgment and experience to offer clients and families a range of options so that they can choose based on their own culture, values and individual needs in a true process of informed consent. In case examples Chedd and Levine demonstrate critical aspects of comprehensive assessment and the central organizing principle of ongoing reflective efforts to adjust the course of intervention. This book drives forward the effort to offer families rational choices and responsive intervention for children with Evidence Based Practices for Autism Spectrum Disorders." ?Joshua D. Feder, M.D., Director of Research, Interdisciplinary Council on Developmental and Learning Disorders Graduate School "Service providers and parents of children with ASD are often overwhelmed and greatly stressed by the explosion of "treatments" for autism, and the marketing and claims of effectiveness of specific approaches. Now that declarations such as 'Only this approach works for children with ASD' are no longer considered credible, there is an urgent need to support parents and professionals with a systematic process to guide individualized treatment planning based on evidence-based practice. Levine and Chedd have taken a huge step in meeting this need in this thought-provoking book that is both rooted in years of clinical experience and in-depth knowledge of the most current research, but exceptionally practical with intriguing case vignettes. A timely and much needed resource." ?Barry M. Prizant, Ph.D., CCC-SLP , Director, Childhood Communication Services, Adjunct Professor; Center for the Study of Human Development, Brown University; Co-Author of The SCERTS Model
