Book Title: Designing Comprehensive Interventions for High-Functioning Individuals With Autism Spectrum Disorders: The Ziggurat Model-Release 2.0
Publisher: AAPC Publishing
Author: Ruth Aspy
While it is relatively easy to find information describing specific interventions, it is difficult to find information on how to develop a comprehensive intervention plan. This textbook presents a process and framework for designing interventions for individuals of all ages with ASD while staying consistent with recent special education trends, including response to intervention (RTI), evidence-based practices, and positive behavioral supports. The Ziggurat Model 2.0 is updated and expanded with the latest research and a new version of the Underlying Characteristics Checklist for Early Intervention (UCC-EI).
