About this book
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 an essential 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.
