Volume One Volume One presents three papers. The first paper reports a meta-analysis exploring the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in rare genetic syndromes. Further analyses consider sources of variance in the data, evaluating the influence of methodological factors and sample characteristics on ASD prevalence estimates. The second paper is an empirical study examining the developmental trajectory of early social cognitive skills in children with ASD. The third provides a summary of the reported research, for dissemination to research participants and professionals in clinical and educational services. Volume Two The second volume consists of five Clinical Practice Reports (CPRs). CPR one presents two formulations, using cognitive-behavioural and systemic models, exploring anxiety experienced by a 50-year-old man presenting at a community learning disability service. CPR two describes a service evaluation project evaluating staff attitudes towards the use of the 'Friends and Family Test' feedback tool. CPR three presents a case study, reporting a systemic intervention with a 44-year-old woman experiencing low mood. CPR four is a single-case experiment, evaluating the effectiveness of a cognitive-behavioural intervention for self-harming behaviour linked to low self-esteem. Finally, an abstract for CPR five is presented, summarising an oral case presentation describing an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy intervention for a 78-year-old man experiencing low mood following a stroke.
