The author provides activities, practical interventions, and techniques that parents can do at home with their child. This book is unique among many autism books on the market, as Thompson does not advocate a particular approach, such as pivotal response treatment or applied behavior analysis.Illustrations, case studies, and numerous examples help make this book easy to read for any - one.
