This summary briefly reviews critical ideas from this book. The focus is to present an overview of critical ideas introduced in different chapters. Using a modular treatment approach, to assist in finding interventions consistent with different symptoms is emphasized in this chapter. Moreover, involving parents in treatment and engaging them in the intervention process may help with generalization and maintenance of interventions. Future research in the field, using case studies as well as more traditional randomized controlled trials is needed to determine what works for whom. Understanding what treatments to use for what symptoms, at which developmental stages, can advance knowledge in the field.
