Prescription for Success
Supporting Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders in the Medical Environment
Because of the unique needs of children with ASD, it is important to pay special attention to the details of their experience in the medical environment. Designed to help make the medical experience easier for all involved, this book presents information on ASD, the varying developmental levels, interventions, and assessments that medical staff, parents, educators, and key service providers can use to more effectively interact with and support children with ASD while in the medical setting. A CD at the back of the book includes forms and worksheets that can be printed and duplicated. Free CD includes forms, activities and games.
