About this book

This handbook presents a diverse range of effective treatment approaches for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Its triple focus on key concepts, treatment and training modalities, and evidence-based interventions for challenging behaviors of individuals with IDD provides a solid foundation for effective treatment strategies, theory-to-implementation issues, and the philosophical and moral aspects of care. Expert contributions advocate for changes in treating individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities by emphasizing caregiver support as well as respecting and encouraging client autonomy, self-determination, and choice. With its quality-of-life approach, the handbook details practices that are person-centered and supportive as well as therapeutically sound.
Topics featured in the handbook include:

  • Functional and preference assessments for clinical decision making.
  • Treatment modalities from cognitive behavioral therapy and pharmacotherapy to mindfulness, telehealth, and assistive technologies.
  • Self-determination and choice as well as community living skills.
  • Quality-of-life issues for individuals with IDD.
  • Early intensive behavior interventions for autism spectrum disorder.
  • Skills training for parents of children with IDD as well as staff training in positive behavior support.
  • Evidence-based interventions for a wide range of challenging behaviors and issues.
The Handbook of Evidence-Based Practices in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities is a must-have resource for researchers, clinicians, scientist-practitioners, and graduate students in clinical psychology, social work, behavior therapy, and rehabilitation.

Reviews

“This book covers a spectrum of topics relevant to the understanding of the philosophy, policy, assessment, and intervention related to evidence-based practice in the intellectual and developmental disability field. … This book will be invaluable for graduate students, professionals working in community services, special education teachers, clinicians in residential facilities, psychiatrists and all other clinicians involved in the care of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.” (Ramasamy Manikam, Journal of Child and Family Studies, Vol. 26, 2017)

“This book presents the current evidence-base for assessment, treatment modalities, and interventions for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. … For academics, this book provides a wealth of information on virtually all issues associated with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and identifies areas in need of further research to grow this field. Thus, if there is space for only one book on this topic in your office, this is the book.” (Theresa M. Courtney, Advances in Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Vol. 1, 2017)
