The Ziggurat Model – A Framework for Designing Comprehensive Interventions for Individuals with High-Functioning Autism and Asperger Syndrome
Updated and Expanded Edition
Autism Society Award-Outstanding Literary Work of the Year (2008)
The Ziggurat Model, for individuals across the spectrum and across the lifespan, is now even more fine-tuned for early intervention. This book presents a process and framework for designing interventions for individuals of all ages with ASD while staying consistent with current special education trends, including response to intervention (RTI), evidence-based practices, and positive behavioral supports. The Ziggurat Model 2.0 is newly updated and expanded with the latest research and a new version of the Underlying Characteristics Checklist for Early Intervention (UCC-EI), in addition to UCC-HF and UCC-CL for individuals with higher functioning and classic autism, respectively. The Ziggurat Model 2.0 provides instructors with: • Core topics related to autism spectrum and related disabilities • Evidence-based materials and practical applications for school, home and community • Authors who are experts in the field of autism spectrum disorders. If you’re teaching a college course or preparing for an in-house training, turn to The Ziggurat Model 2.0 to cover intervention strategies/comprehensive planning.
