“This book walks you through basic understanding and theories of behavioral intervention and assessment, then through five interventions heavily supported with evidence. … This book is well suited for clinicians, teachers, paraprofessionals, and even parents to some degree, who may be involved in the lives of children with autism spectrum disorder. If you have time to read just one book this year for professional enhancement, make this the book.” (Carrie L. McPherson, Advances in Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Vol. 1, 2017)
“The authors of have written a must-have reference guide on ASD by offering evidence-based interventions with immediate practical application implications for mental health professionals. This is a much-needed and worthy contribution to the field, advancing five of the most highly acclaimed, evidence-based, early intervention techniques for children with ASD. I strongly recommend this book as a definitive guide for clinicians who are searching for scientifically valid, efficacious intervention modalities for young children with ASD.” (Michael S. Goldsby, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2016)
