    Creative and Practical Strategies for Interventional Design

    This book is filled with practical approaches to designing and implementing effective interventions for school-aged children with autism spectrum disorders. The style is succint and emphasizes direct examples that can be immediately implemented into an individual child's intervention program. I found chapter 15, 'Developing Useful Interests: Broadening general intersts, cultivating narrow interests,' to be of particular merit. The book is divided into two main sections: School and Home. Both sections have invaluable advice to parent and teacher and are designed to allow for a smooth transition from school activities to home interventions. The chapter on sibling issues is also very enlightening and emphasizes the inherent socialization skills that 'neurotypical' siblings can model for their autistic family member(s). Overall really outstanding. Emphasizes the practical over the academic a quick, effective, and inspiring read. Hats of to the authors!!!

    A Wonderful Resource

    This book is a must-have both for parents and educators helping children on the spectrum! As a parent of a preschooler with Autism, the information in this book really helps set up the child (& teachers) for success. I plan on using this as a reference for many years to come.

    Great for Parents - Great for Teachers

    This beautifully designed and well written book is filled with specific strategies for behavioral modification in children with autism spectrum disorders. It provides invaluable suggestions to make school life successful, and home life more predictable and calm. I highly recommend this book to all parents, teachers, and staff who support and love an autism-spectrum child.

    Useful book

    This book is a practical guide for anyone who has a child or works with students with autism. It provides information about the researched based principles of applied behavior analysis and how to use this approach in a practical way with school aged children on the autism spectrum. It gives great samples of goals and strategies that can be used for children with autism as they progress through elementary school. It offers practical interventions for typical autistic behaviors such as self stimulation, difficulty with changes in routine, and sensory issues. As a school psychologist I found this book very helpful in giving teachers ideas that they can implement easily in their classrooms. For parents, it offers suggestions for how to manage behaviors and how to help your child be integrated into the regular education classroom. I would recommend this book for parents, special education teachers, regular education teachers, and school psychologists.
