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.

The Ziggurat Model is unique. While it is easy to find volumes of information describing specific interventions, it is difficult to find information on how to develop an intervention plan. This book presents a process and framework for designing comprehensive interventions for individuals of all ages with autism spectrum disorders. The Ziggurat Model was designed to simplify a complex process. Parents and professionals will find the framework of the Ziggurat Model to be a guide in developing more thorough and effective interventions.

While the Ziggurat Model is designed to address the needs of all individuals with autism spectrum disorders, this book is written explicitly for the higher functioning population. The book includes assessment tools, case scenarios, and many interventions that were developed with their needs in mind.

This textbook enhances 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.
