About this book


This book addresses the importance and relevance of interprofessional care coordination for children and youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It covers the role of interprofessional collaborations across various settings for multiple service provision purposes. The volume examines interprofessional collaboration among professionals across such broad issues as screening, evaluation, intervention, and overall care management of ASD. In addition, the book explores more narrowly focused issues, such as providing transition services during early childhood and young adulthood, culturally responsive practice and advocacy issues for individuals with ASD from diverse backgrounds, and providing care for individuals with ASD and co-occurring trauma. Finally, the book concludes with the editors’ recommendations for future directions in interprofessional care for pediatric ASD.

Topics featured in this book include:

  • Autism screening tools and interdisciplinary coordination of the processes.
  • Dell Children’s (S)TAAR Model of Early Autism Assessment.
  • The Early Start Denver Model (ESDM).
  • Transition from early schooling for youth with ASD.
  • Postsecondary and vocational opportunities for youth with autism.
  • Transitioning from pediatric to adult medical systems.
  • International perspectives in coordinated care for individuals with ASD.
  • Psychopharmacology of ASD.

Interprofessional Care Coordination for Pediatric Autism Spectrum Disorder is an essential resource for researchers, clinicians and professionals, and graduate students in clinical child and school psychology, social work, behavioral therapy and related disciplines, including clinical medicine, clinical nursing, counseling, speech and language pathology, and special education.
