This book, written by an Oxford tutor and writer, covers all aspects of the Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA), including problem-solving, critical thinking, and the writing task. It should also prove useful for other aptitude tests such as the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT). The TSA is an admission test for an increasing number of courses at an increasing number of universities, including and originally Oxford and Cambridge. The emphasis of the TSA is very much on thinking skills, and the amount of knowledge required is minimal. This means that the best way to prepare is to develop your thinking skills by working through a large number of TSA-style questions, and the bulk of this book consists of three full-length mock papers, each followed by detailed explanations of the answers. You should look upon the TSA not only as a means to stand out from your competition, but also, and indeed mostly, as an opportunity to hone your thinking skills, which are going to be far more important to your future impact and wellbeing than any facts that you could ever learn. As BF Skinner once put it, "e;Education is what survives when what has been learnt has been forgotten."e;

Current rates of autism diagnoses have been cause for concern and research as well as rumor and misinformation. Important questions surround the condition: how early can an accurate diagnosis be made? At what age should intervention start? How can parents recognize warning signs? And what causes autism in the first place? There are no easy answers, but the Handbook of Early Intervention for Autism Spectrum Disorders gives researchers, practitioners, and academics the science and guidance to better understand and intervene. Background chapters survey the history of professional understanding of the disorders and the ongoing debate over autism as a single entity or a continuum. Chapters on best methods in screening, assessment, and diagnosis reflect the transition between the DSM-V and older diagnostic criteria. And at the heart of the book, the intervention section ranges from evidence-based strategies for developing core skills to ethical concerns, cultural considerations, and controversial treatments. Included in the Handbook's broad-based coverage: Designing curriculum programs for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Mainstream education for children with ASD. Teaching independent living skills to children with ASD. Social skills and play. Behavioral and mental health disorders in children with ASD. Training and supporting caregivers in evidence-based practices. Teaching cognitive skills to children with ASD. The Handbook of Early Intervention for Autism Spectrum Disorders is a comprehensive reference for researchers, professors, and graduate students as well as clinicians and other scientist-practitioners in clinical child and school psychology, child and adolescent psychiatry, social work, rehabilitation, special education, and pediatric medicine.
