"Play-Based Interventions for Children and Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum explores the most recognized, researched, and practical methods for using play therapy with the increasing number of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), and shows clincians how to integrate these methods into their practices. Using a diverse array of play-based approaches, the book brings together the voices of researchers and practicing clinicians who are successfully utilizing play and play-based interventions with children and adolescents on the autism spectrum. It also examines the neurobiological underpinnings of play in children on the autism spectrum and the overall effect of play on neuro-typical and neuro-atypical development. Finally, through careful integration of theory with real-world clinical case application, each chapter also shows clinicians how to incorporate a particular treatment approach and make it a viable and effective part of their work with this challenging clinical population"--Provided by publisher.

Bromfield gives us all a window into a world that is hard to describe, impossible to imagine, but needs and deserves to be understood." —Naomi Angoff Chedd, LMHC, Autism Specialist and coauthor of Replays Cutting-edge guidance for effective treatment of children and adolescents with Asperger Syndrome Diagnoses of Asperger Syndrome in children and adolescents are on the rise, and while some clinicians have training and experience in this area, most do not.
