This textbook 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. "Designing Comprehensive Interventions for High-Functioning Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders: The Ziggurat Model" 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. 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.
