Announcing, another book! A Spectrum of Solutions for Clients with Autism: Treatment for Adolescents and Adults edited by Dr. Rachel Bédard (me!) and Dr. Lorna Hecker. This book has 45 chapters written by leaders in the field, which means the chapters are authored by professionals, people with ASD, and professionals with ASD (we do like to be thorough and inclusive!).
The promo from Routledge states:
This book is a comprehensive resource to guide work with individuals on the autism spectrum. It reflects the true range of needs presented by individuals with autism, pulling together the most salient aspects of treatment with invaluable information from several disciplines synthesized to guide your work.
Divided into topical sections with chapters from three field experts in each, this book features contributions from therapists, educators, and medical doctors, as well as financial planners, health advocates, and innovators. The diverse disciplines and backgrounds of each author lend a different voice and perspective to each chapter, reflecting the continuum of care necessary when working with clientele on the Autism Spectrum, and that, for patients on the spectrum, one solution does not fit all.
For use by counselors, applied behavioral analysts, occupational therapists, social workers, teachers, and more, this text presents readers with expertise from various contributing disciplines to give them a treatment resource that can guide their daily work.

If you are a client, just a reminder: NO pressure. I’m not asking you to buy the book; you don’t have to own the book to be my client. I’m sure we will have a copy in the waiting area (uh, when we open again…). My clients are my inspiration for getting this book done. (Gosh, there was a lot of whining on my part! Sorry about that.) You guys rock, and I would like the world to sit up and take notice.
