Developing and Evaluating Educational Programs for Students with Autism is a uniquely rigorous and thorough reference benefiting school psychologists and special education professionals as well as those in allied educational and mental health fields, including clinical child, school, and developmental psychologists, psychiatrists, and other professionals working with children with autism.
