Educational Practices in Human Services Organizations: EnvisionSMART™: A Melmark Model of Administration and Operation covers these HSO groups, both public and private, who have one main goal, to enhance human well-being. These organizations provide a variety of services for both children and adults, including mental health care and educational programs. With decreases in federal funding, many private HSOs have been created to supplement the void. To ensure adequate services to their patients, it is vital that HSOs adopt an effective model. Each volume in this series highlights key concepts and applications pertinent to each division of HSOs. This book demonstrates how to develop an educational program within HSOs while adhering to state and federal guidelines. It then reviews various evidence-based instructional methodologies, including discrete trial training, errorless learning, and incidental teaching. Finally, the authors provide instructions and templates on how to record students’ progress helping to drive data informed decisions.

Clinician’s Guide to Sexuality and Autism: A Guide to Sex Education for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders is the first book to provide clinicians with comprehensive curriculum of sexuality education skills for people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Starting with the importance of teaching sexuality skills to people with autism, this book provides an outline and overview of the recommended teaching strategies (e.g., Behavioral Skills Training, Cool vs. Not Cool, video modeling). This book also reviews the fourteen skill domains directly related to sexuality, including the key skills one should acquire in each domain. A timeline focusing on what skills should be targeted at what age and what skills to teach across the lifespan are also discussed. The curriculum covers domains that are often neglected in sex education for people with different disabilities in general (e.g. values, types of relationships, gender identity, or preferences). Additionally, this curriculum addresses component skills of sexuality in a way that allows early teaching to build upon areas of learning systematically over time, thus likely to have an improvement in teaching over time.

Social and Communicative Functioning in Populations with Intellectual Disability: A Developmental Perspective, Volume 65 in the International Review of Research in Developmental Disabilities series, focuses on social and communicative functioning with a particular emphasis on people with intellectual disability. The volume brings together international researchers across disciplines to highlight innovative approaches to holistically describe social and communicative abilities in this population including teleassessment, self-report, and community-engaged research designs. Through a lifespan approach, key issues are raised related to social and communicative functioning across a range of communication modalities from infancy through adulthood.Additional chapters cover Adaptation of in-person tools for remote assessment of infants and toddlers with social communication concerns in community-based settings, Measuring social communication in people with ID who use minimal speech: Differences across the lifespan, and Social Inclusion of Adults with IDD: Toward Belonging, Building a Life: Examining the advocacy and social experiences of students with IDD in inclusive postsecondary education.

Neuropsychiatric Disorders and Epigenetics, Second Edition is a comprehensive reference on the epigenetic basis of common neuropsychiatric disorders. The volume is organized into chapters covering individual neuropsychiatric disorders, from addiction to anxiety and autism spectrum disorders, and is contributed by leading experts in their respective fields. The epigenetic aspects of each disorder are discussed in the context of the full range of associated epigenetic mechanisms, including DNA modification, histone post-translational modification, chromatin organization, and non-coding RNA. A particular emphasis is placed on potential epigenetic interventions when the effects of environmental stimuli on epigenetic states is particularly relevant to disease. This new edition has been fully updated to reflect recent research advances enabled by genomic technologies, as well as therapeutic interventions for previously unmanageable disorders. Several new chapters have been added on disorders or approaches not considered in the earlier edition, including epigenetics and anxiety disorders, epigenetics and neuroimaging in neuropsychiatric disorders, genome-wide approaches to epigenetic research, and the epigenetics of spinal muscular atrophy.
