Reviews

"If you have a child with autism, Early Intervention & Autism: Real-life Questions, Real-life Answers will become an essential addition to your library, the book that sits at your bedside table, the one you open again and again when questions loom large. It explains early intervention, but it offers so much more.... Early Intervention & Autism gives parents the hands-on tools and strategies to start working effectively with a child, even before EI services kick in. Autism is a continuum; each child with ASD is unique. As Dr. Jim makes clear, there is no one-size-fits-all intervention. His focus is always on the child, treating the child, not the symptoms."
