Overview

Childhood Autism provides clinicians with a comprehensive guide for working with autistic children and their families. It offers practical assistance with early diagnosis, cutting edge treatment options and goals, interdisciplinary insights, and available resources. Empirical research findings are presented in a clear, accessible manner. Perhaps most importantly, vivid case examples bring both the therapist’s and patient’s experience to the fore as they work towards recovery.

This clear and informative book should be required reading for professionals and students in the fields of medicine, social work, psychology, education, and any other clinicians who work with children on the autism spectrum.
