'A wonderful resource for educators and mental health professionals, this book is filled with practical and helpful guidance covering a range of issues. It provides concise summaries of information and intervention strategies relevant to older children, adolescents, and adults with autism. The volume will also be of tremendous benefit to parents. A real contribution to the field.' - "Fred R. Volkmar, MD, Yale Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine, USA" 'This wonderfully innovative volume should be a first resource for anyone interested in the complexities of the world of persons with autism, their families, and service providers. The impressive group of outstanding scholars and clinicians from many different fields contribute compelling insights about the ways that we can all work toward optimizing the quality of life of persons with autism.' - "Jake Burack, PhD, McGill University & Hospital Riviere-des-Prairies, Canada" 'Although some young children with autism make major gains in early childhood, many others learn at a slower pace and continue to show significant autistic involvement over the years. Professionals of many disciplines who serve older children and adolescents on the autism spectrum will find in this book a scholarly, broad, and very valuable focus on these older learners and their continuing challenges.' "- Sandra L. Harris, PhD, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology and Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA"
