The chapter “Working with Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders,” in School Mental Health Services for Adolescents, provides information and guidance related to identification and referral, evidence-based practices, and service delivery issues and models for adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The authors open the chapter with a brief history of autism, beginning with the category of Pervasive Developmental Disorder in the DSM-III in 1980, and culminating with the changes made in criteria for ASD in the DSM-5 in 2013. Next, the authors explore issues related to assessment, including diagnosis of ASD during adolescence and assessing challenges to be targeted in schools. They then describe evidence-based practices that can be implemented to train teachers and paraprofessionals, intervene with ASD, and avoid problems before they occur. Finally, the authors present service delivery issues and models when working with adolescents with ASD in secondary schools.
