Summary

Diagnoses of autism in children are on the rise, and while some clinicians have training and experience in this area, the majority does not. This book reviews a variety of interventions and treatments that can be used with children who have autism spectrum disorder. It discusses the advantages and limitations of each method, including developmental appropriateness. Psychologists and counselors working with children with autism will find helpful illustrations to each approach, as well as guidance on each treatment plan's impact on the family.
