“The authors cover a wealth of information from methods for identifying the disorders to strategies for ameliorating learning and behavior problems associated with autism spectrum disorders. They focus on the importance of working with parents/guardians and caregivers to meet the needs of the children in their care. Recommended.”
“Because the text offers so many practical tools, it will provide a distinctive contribution to education. I strongly believe ALL classroom teachers will benefit from the author’s perspective and the usefulness of the materials in the book.”
"This book is a great tool for those who are new to the field and for parents looking for more information on a variety of topics. The book stays focused on those receiving treatment and best practices. The visual aids help illustrate and demonstrate ideas. The authors do a very thorough job in describing implantation techniques and tools for a variety of treatment options, making this book a great tool for parents and providers."
"This book provides educators with all the basics needed to educate a child with autism."
I was looking for a book that provided more details about how to implement specific ASD interventions. This is a good book but the intervention information is more general.
