Overview

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. AAPC textbooks enhance the teaching of undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as certificate programs and professional development workshops, by providing 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.
