Using the same product and easy-to-read format as the first edition, the newly expanded Sensory Issues and High-Functioning Autism Spectrum and Related Disorders explains how many children with high-functioning ASD relate to the world through their senses. The book reviews sensory processing terminology and how the sensory systems impact behaviour.

This book uncovers the puzzling behaviours by children and youth with high functioning autism spectrum disorders (AS) that have a sensory base and, therefore, are often difficult to pinpoint and interpret.

Written in a very reader-friendly style, the book covers the impact of the sensory system on behaviour, reviews formal and informal assessment tools and offers an invaluable set of practical interventions that can be used by parents and educators to help promote success for children and youth with AS. The "sensory gang" (a set of clever icons used throughout the book) helps the reader navigate between the senses.

New in this edition:

  • an expanded discussion of assessment tools is
  • a comprehensive chapter on evidence-based interventions
  • a new chapter looks at meeting a student's sensory needs throughout the day and across environments using simple and easy-to-use forms and checklists.
