Catalog No. 29289

... Synthesizes and analyzes the basic, translational, and applied research base for autism service delivery

... Uses a translational model to integrate findings

... Promotes bidirectional translation and evidence-based decision making for autism treatment

... Explores the one nonmedical therapy (i.e., applied behavior analysis) the U.S. Surgeon General has classified as effective and safe for autism service delivery

This volume examines ways in which service delivery to individuals with autism can be improved from both ends of the basic-applied research spectrum. It introduces the concept of translational scholarship and examines real-world value in developing relevant interventions. Each area of coverage reviews current findings on autism from basic research and, then, discusses the latest applied research literature to create a roadmap for researchers, clinicians, and scientist-practitioners to develop new, effective strategies as children, adolescents, and adults with autism continue to learn and grow.

Featured coverage includes:

... Why practice needs science and how science informs practice.

... The social learning disorder of stimulus salience in autism.

... Assessment and treatment of problem behaviors associated with transitions.

... Understanding persistence and improving treatment through behavioral momentum theory.

... The behavioral economics of reinforcer value.

... Increasing tolerance for delay with children and adults with autism.

Autism Service Delivery is a resource for researchers, clinicians and scientist-practitioners, and graduate students in the fields of developmental psychology, behavioral therapy, social work, clinical child and school psychology, occupational therapy, and speech pathology.
