A Parents Guide to Early Autism Intervention Book Excerpt:

This book is intended to help other parents who are currently in the situation we were in. Our baby, only one year old, was discovered to have developmental delays. We knew nothing about autism at this time but was urged by knowledgeable friends to get him evaluated. We followed through and did not wait. As a result of his evaluation he was placed into an early intervention program with the Lanterman Regional Center in Los Angeles, California. He is eight now and still a client at Lanterman. This book is about his first five years in the autism system. It explains our experiences with those first few at-home therapies, his first speech therapy, his OT evaluation, his first IEP, and kindergarten. During these transitional years (our transition from typical parents to autism parents and his transition from typical kid to autism kid) we had a huge learning curve, the learning curve for autism is mind boggling! We threw ourselves into helping our son and learning all we could and keeping on top of his services and his intervention. This book documents the good and the bad during this time. I intend this book as a learning experience, and hopefully your road within the autism system will be smoother.

Handbook of Parent Child Interaction Therapy for Children on the Autism Spectrum Book Excerpt:

This handbook offers a theoretical foundation for the adaptation of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families. The volume examines current treatments for children with ASD and provides a rationale for why PCIT is considered a strong option to address many of the concerns found within this population of children and families.

The handbook demonstrates the versatility of PCIT in conjunction with standard science-based therapies in addressing specific behavioral problems in this young population. Chapters provide a theoretical basis for PCIT, the empirical evidence for its efficacy, clinical considerations, and training issues. Chapters also offer a selection of case studies that help illustrate how PCIT has been successful in treating children with autism. The handbook concludes by identifying the gaps that need to be addressed by future research. Topics featured in the Handbook include: A clinical description of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. The effects of medication for individuals with ASD. The importance of parent-child interactions in social communication and development. Teaching complex social behavior to children with ASD. Internet-delivered PCIT (I-PCIT) for children with autism. Child-Directed Interaction treatments for children with ASD. Parent-Directed Interaction treatments for children on the autism spectrum.

How Parents Deal with the Education of Their Child on the Autism Spectrum Book Excerpt:

Powerful moral, social justice and political arguments have convinced parents that it is their democratic right to place their children on the autism spectrum into mainstream educational environments so that their children may eventually take up their rightful place in a mainstream adult life. But what is really happening for some of these parents when they try to gain and maintain an appropriate education for their child in these mainstream contexts and beyond? What is the educational experience like for these families who are in the midst of this generational change from historical exclusion to inclusion? Current research indicates that while islands of excellent mainstream inclusive practice do exist the educational experience for many students on the autism spectrum can often be one of hostility, inconsistency and unreliability. Without appropriate understanding of best practice educational methods, these students can present an inordinate educational challenge to both parents and educators alike. How do parents deal with such complex educational profiles? How do they continue to maximize their children’s development over time? What are the barriers that hinder their quest? What are the facilitators that help their quest? To answer these questions, this book provides an in-depth, recent examination of the real life journeys of families who attempted to gain an appropriate education for their children on the autism spectrum including the areas of diagnosis, early intervention, mainstream schooling, home education, segregated schooling and transition to work and further study. Jasmine McDonald BA DipEd MSpecEd (Hons) PhD, is affiliated with the Telethon Kids Institute, University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia. Her current work includes trialling a peer-to-peer mentoring program for tertiary students on the autism spectrum. This program runs at Curtin University in Western Australia and will be replicated and evaluated at the University of Western Australia. The results will eventually be shared through the Australian Government Autism Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) website (http://www.autismcrc.com.au/).
