Development of the Toolboxes follows a typical path to meet known needs of all child and adolescent facing professionals in education, mental health and healthcare and more recently, parents and families. Development is influenced from many places and for many reasons. Invariably it will be from a clinical or research source but it’s just as likely to come from a parent, a grandparent or a professional user. Selective mutism was a requested topic from an individual school psychologist in California and its inclusion was welcomed by many users who had been struggling with this behavior.
The creation of Autism Behavior Toolbox, Autism Family Toolbox and the Apple Autism Apps were classic cases where global factors made it an inevitable development decision. The level of support needed, particularly in education, the ever increasing number of cases per thousand population diagnosed and the government initiatives worldwide to research the problem and support those affected made the subject an obvious candidate.
While there is a significant amount of research into causes and diagnoses the Autism Editions in the Behavior Toolbox Series are the first complete resources to provide assistance, solutions and education at the front line enabling parents, families and professionals to deal with real-time issues.
The Series is updated on a regular and ongoing basis through active in-house research and from experts working in their respective fields, suitably accredited organizations and institutions.
