This handbook offers a theoretical foundation for the adaptation of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families. The volume examines current treatments for children with ASD and provides a rationale for why PCIT is considered a strong option to address many of the concerns found within this population of children and families. It presents an overview of PCIT theory, the goals of PCIT, the unique aspects of the treatment, and the exceptional outcomes. The handbook demonstrates the versatility of PCIT in conjunction with standard science-based therapies in addressing specific behavioral problems in this young population. Chapters provide a theoretical basis for PCIT, the empirical evidence for its efficacy, clinical considerations, and training issues. Chapters also offer a selection of case studies that help illustrate how PCIT has been successful in treating children with autism. The handbook concludes by identifying the gaps that need to be addressed by future research. Topics featured in the Handbook include: A clinical description of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. The effects of medication for individuals with ASD. The importance of parent-child interactions in social communication and development. Teaching complex social behavior to children with ASD. Internet-delivered PCIT (I-PCIT) for children with autism. Child-Directed Interaction treatments for children with ASD. Parent-Directed Interaction treatments for children on the autism spectrum. The Handbook of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy for Children on the Autism Spectrum is a must-have resource for researchers, professors, clinicians/practitioners/therapists, and graduate students across many interrelated disciplines, including child and school psychology, behavioral therapy, social work, child and adolescent psychiatry, pediatrics, and family studies as well as occupational therapy, physical therapy, behavior analysis, and speech therapy.

“Fast Facts for the School Nurse, Second Edition, will direct school nurses to the answers for many questions and to wiser counsel when a dilemma seems unsolvable. It is…authored by a school nurse of publicly acclaimed distinction who brings a lifetime of experience to these pages.” —Lucille A.

It is written for nurses who are transitioning to a school setting, yet has much to offer more experienced school nurses. The second edition has been substantially revised to address the Healthy People 2020 initiative to school-age children and their families, and to incorporate information about the push toward formal evaluation of school nurses. It discusses new technology and the effects of head trauma and other sports-related injuries on academic performance.

Authored by a nurse with over 25 years of school nursing experience, this consistently organized reference offers straightforward guidelines to a range of daily tasks and nursing responsibilities and provides clinical protocols for safe management of common childhood illnesses, accidents, and emergencies, along with legal and ethical considerations, documentation, high-risk areas in school nursing practice, and the requirements of both the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Included are the delivery of culturally appropriate care, screening tools, wellness strategies, care plans for children with chronic disorders and special needs, adolescent sexuality, childhood obesity, drug use, and a food allergies “tool kit.” “Clinical Snapshots” throughout highlight critical information. The guide is useful as a supplemental textbook for nursing students studying for state or national certification exams.

"This is the second of two themed volumes addressing current issues and trends in special education. Volume 20 covers research, technology, and teacher preparation whilst volume 19 covered identification, assessment and instruction. The field of special education constantly changes as a result of legislation, new instructional formats and current research investigations. It can be difficult for general and special educators, school counselors and psychologists, administrators and practicing clinicians to keep up with these changes and be current in all areas relating to special education. The special education literature knowledge base should reflect these changes; however, there is no current resource that effectively and comprehensively does this. The purpose of "Current Issues and Trends in Special Education" is to fill this void, providing chapters written by active researchers and practitioners in their respective areas.
