Product Description: The number of children diagnosed with autism has increased dramatically in the last decade, and a growing number of behavior analysts, psychologists, educators, and speech pathologists - to name a few - are just starting to regularly treat individuals with autism. Children and adults withautism spectrum disorder (ASD) require specialized instruction and behavior support to teach them critical skills and establish a meaningful quality of life. However, these objectives can only be achieved if professional and paraprofessional service providers have access to the most effectiveevidence-based and empirically supported methods for teaching children with autism. Similarly, practitioners must know about effective intervention methods that can be implemented to reduce and eliminate problem behaviors frequently displayed by people who have ASD. This guide is an indispensible asset, appropriate for any behavioral specialist, on all aspects of this increasingly prevalent disorder. Teaching and Behavior Support for Children and Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder brings together contributed chapters on assessment, instruction, and behavioralintervention procedures unique to the autism population. Each chapter covers a single topic according to a uniform format, which will ease comprehension and facilitate procedural adaptation in "real world" settings such as school, home, and the community. Usable advice and methods for teachingdifficult skills, such as self-care, verbal language, and communication, are provided. Authored by recognized experts, the concise and readable chapters also feature forms, illustrations, summary tables, and resource lists to further guide practitioners in selecting "best practice" methods. Takinginto account specific settings, different age groups, and practitioner experience, this book will serve as a resource for educators, psychologists, and behavior specialists in the field of autism education and treatment, and as an educational tool for those enrolled in university classes training tobecome practitioners."This book provides practitioners with a concise and practical overview of critical evidence-based approaches. It is a well-organized and readable resource that should be required reading for anyone working with people on the autism spectrum."--V. Mark Durand, Professor of Psychology, University ofSouth Florida St. Petersburg and Co-Editor, Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions"Dr. Luiselli is a master editor who, in this volume, has compiled a rich, well-organized collection of practical tips and suggestions for helping people with autism spectrum disorders. This promises to be a heavily-used guidebook that will prove its worth over and over again. This well-organizedvolume is a rare and eminently useful contribution to the applied literature. It will be of great value to all professionals and parents concerned with helping people with ASD."--Glen Dunlap, Ph.D., Division of Applied Research and Educational Support, Department of Child and Family Studies,Florida Mental Health Institute, University of South Florida"Designing support for individuals with ASD has become increasingly complex as new knowledge, strategies and sensitivity have emerged. In this volume, James Luiselli has assembled an impressive breadth of information in a condensed format. Nationally recognized clinicians and scholars provide 27chapters that distil current knowledge across four large sections: Assessment, Teaching, Problem Behavior and "how to" Guidelines. The result allows families and practitioners to survey the evidence-based assessment, instruction and intervention approaches most likely to be helpful for children andadults with ASD."--Rob Horner, Ph.D., Alumni-Knight Professor, Special Education and Director of the Educational and Community Supports Research Unit, University of Oregon

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
