new bookLee A. Wilkinson, Ph.D., adjunct faculty in NSU’s College of Psychology is the author of a new book: A Best Practice Guide to Assessment and Intervention for Autism Spectrum Disorder in Schools, (2nd Edition).

It brings the topics of assessment and intervention together in a single authoritative resource guide consistent with recent advances in evidence-based practice.

His earlier book, Overcoming Anxiety and Depression on the Autism Spectrum: A Self-Help Guide Using CBT, was recently honored as an “Award-Winning Finalist in the “Health: Psychology/Mental Health” category of the 2016 Best Book Awards.”
