9781462525096: Autism and Joint Attention: Development, Neuroscience, and Clinical Fundamentals

From a preeminent researcher, this book looks at the key role of joint attention in both typical and atypical development. Peter C. Mundy shows that no other symptom dimension is more strongly linked to early identification and treatment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). He synthesizes a wealth of knowledge on how joint attention develops, its neurocognitive underpinnings, and how it helps to explain the learning, language, and social-cognitive features of ASD across the lifespan. Clinical implications are explored, including reviews of cutting-edge diagnostic methods and targeted treatment approaches.

About the Author:

Peter C. Mundy, PhD, is Professor and Lisa Capps Endowed Chair of Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Education in the School of Education and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis). He is also Director of Educational Research at the UC Davis MIND Institute. A developmental and clinical psychologist, Dr. Mundy has been working on defining the nature of autism and developmental disabilities for over 30 years. An author of the Early Social Communication Scales, which was selected by Autism Speaks as a recommended measure for clinical trials, he is an associate editor of Autism Research and serves as an editorial board member or consulting editor for numerous other journals.

Review:

"An instant classic. While we have long known of the centrality of joint attention difficulties in young children with autism, this volume, for the first time, takes a comprehensive view of the problem. Integrating the literature on this topic and helping us understand implications for learning and development, this volume will be of great interest to clinicians and researchers alike."--Fred R. Volkmar, MD, Irving B. Harris Professor, Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine

"By carefully examining the role of the development of joint attention, Mundy provides a compelling developmental framework for understanding ASD in the context of human nature. He skillfully integrates current research on neuroscience, genetics, early behavioral intervention, and psychological science. This book allows the reader to pull together disparate lines of autism research in a way that provides a deeper understanding and inspires further work. It is a tour de force that will be appreciated both by those just beginning to learn about ASD and by experts in the field."--Geraldine Dawson, PhD, Director, Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development, Duke University

"This landmark book is a 'must read' for everyone from basic scientists to clinicians and educators. Mundy was the first scientist to identify joint attention as one of the key symptoms of autism. His research over the past three decades has led to a wealth of exciting findings and has transformed our theoretical understanding of both joint attention and autism. Now he synthesizes a range of evidence to argue persuasively that joint attention is a foundational ability that lies at the heart of human nature. A remarkable achievement."--Helen Tager-Flusberg, PhD, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Boston University

"Mundy provides a thought-provoking, novel, and comprehensive discussion of joint attention, impairments in which are a central feature of children with ASD. This book is full of new insights on the neurodevelopment and treatment of ASD. It is an essential resource for clinicians and researchers of all backgrounds."--Connie Kasari, PhD, Center for Autism Research and Treatment, Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, University of California, Los Angeles


"Provides enough detailed information to help professionals working with individuals with autism develop comprehensive treatment strategies....Mundy goes into considerable detail about what research shows regarding the role joint attention plays in autism. This book is made particularly useful as he covers a wide range of material showing how joint attention as a construct has been deemed important throughout many different hypotheses for autism....This is a book useful for any professional who wants to more fully understand autism. It should be read by anyone who expects that working to help individuals with autism should involve not only understanding specific interventions but also understanding different facets and details of this condition. Reading this book provides a strong review of autism as a neurobehavioral condition and what makes it different from other conditions. It is a book that provides a full review of different hypotheses and also genetic and neurological factors associated with autism.” (PsycCRITIQUES 2016-10-31)
