Autism Spectrum Disorders (CHES)

Autism Spectrum Disorders (CHES)

Characteristics, Causes, and Practical Issues

This course is only for CHES professionals.

Written by an academic psychologist with decades of experience, this book covers historical roots, methods of assessment to intervention, causes, and education. Emphasis is placed on practical information and the most recent research on the autistic spectrum.

I feel this book has something to offer even a supposed “expert” in the study of autism…which does justice to the complexity of the subject covered. – Autism

Why We Chose This Book

Many practitioners work with clients with ASD or very picky eaters whose families believe they have ASD. It’s important that practitioners keep current on the latest research and treatments for this health concern.

About the Author

Jill Boucher, PhD, is a neuropsychologist and Professor of Developmental Psychology at City University in London. She has the conviction that practitioners and
researchers must work collaboratively to improve the lives of people with ASD, and to help families and others who support and provide for them. That approach is the basis for this book.
