    A very Informative Book

    As a mother of an autistic child and Student special ed teacher,I have read many books and reviews of various treatments and interventions that claim to be THE way to go. What I like best about this book is it describes a method of intervention, does not push it as a cure and encourages parents to look for other options. The first few chapters offer parents information on how to judge the various treatments and interventions proposed by therapists and professionals. I would have to disagree with the reviewer who wrote that Maurice is wrong to encourage that children with autism get their shots. The dangers of preventable diseases far outweight the dangers of giving shots, not to mention many of todays shots do not contain the chemicals thought to be the cause of autism.

    Catherine Maurice does not claim to have knowledge of the cause of autism nor does she discuss the danger of immunizations because the fact is there is NO proof. What she does claim is that the discrete trials of Lovaas work. There is SUBSTANTIAL evidence that ABA works. I have put my faith in this book and ABA and it has made a difference so far.

    Phenomenal Resource for Autism

    This book was recommended to me by an executive director of a Center for autistic and Aspergers children. As a school Psychologist, this book is a tremendous resource with literally hundreds of useful strategies and techniques for teaching autistic children. Despite other ctiques, the book does not make any claims that every autistic child can be 'taught' out of their disorder; rather it states that Pre-K intervention is essential to appropriate outcomes, and a structured approach can go a long way in helping remediate learning deficits inherent within this disorder. I wholeheartedly recomend it

    It isn't right for every child

    I am a parent of an 8 year old boy and ABA just isn't 100 percent right for him. I've done 4 years of research and have put more time and effort into that work than I did to earn my 4 year college degree. There are too many medical doctors supporting the biological theory that some day ABA will be obsolete. Autism is a disease and will be treated effectively by doctors everywhere some day, hopepfully soon. However, the repetitive, small steps first type teaching does help some children. My son does not like repetitive teaching and breaking down tasks into minute details does not hold his attention. But it is for the children out there who have been helped by ABA that I give this book and Lovaas's approach a 3 star rating.

    The only proven treatment for autism

    Behavioral therapy, the discrete trial method used by Dr. Lovaas, is the only scientifically proven treatment for autism. Even the U.S. Surgeon General says so on their website. (25 to 40 hours per week of intensive behavioral therapy) In other words, everything else is experimental. Some treatments have been experimental for decades because they just don't work. Most of the autism schools are experimental. I just thought you all should know. You do the online research and reading. Maurice is a mom with 100% success (two children: one of them adopted). I hope this does not put those schools out of business. Actually, I really don't care if the experimental autism schools go out of business.
