Evidence-Based Assessment Tools in ASD: A Comprehensive Review of What is Available, What is Appropriate and What is 'Fit-for-Purpose'
 

About the eBook

This cutting-edge resource provides a comprehensive review of available assessment tools for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), presenting up-to-date evidence for their efficacy as well as best practice for selecting appropriate forms of assessment across the lifespan.

Gathering together the latest international research evidence, Kenneth J. Aitken provides a clear evaluation of the commonly used assessment measures, and examines other tools not yet validated for ASD assessment but which are likely to have promising applications for the field. The tools covered include those relating to core assessment areas, such as cognitive ability, communication, motor skills and executive function, as well as supplementary and emerging areas of assessment, such as behaviour and attention, sensory issues, anxiety and depression, friendships and loneliness, and internet safety.

This pioneering report will be an indispensable primary reference for researchers, academics, clinicians, service providers and commissioners.
