From the reviews:
"In summary, “Evidence-based Practices and Treatment for Children with Autism” provides a well-organized, up to date analysis of the major treatment programs with proven efficacy. It links research with clinical practice for children with ASDs, a major public health concern. For that reason, I highly recommend this book. As each of us struggles to find the most effective treatment for this critical population of children, we owe it to ourselves and our patients to understand the basis for and effectiveness of our treatment decisions."

“This book presents various treatments for autistic spectrum disorders which are supported by meta-analytic research. … Graduate students in psychology and social work would benefit as well. … book presents the latest research findings in order to give readers a better understanding of autistic spectrum disorders and treatment options. … It is easy to read and filled with useful information on evidence-based practices, along with hundreds of references to follow up on specific details. This is essential reading for clinicians in the field.”

"In the words of the classic Wendy’s commercial, it is often very difficult to find “the beef” amid the hype. Evidence-Based Practices and Treatments for Children With Autism, edited by Reichow, Doehring, Cicchetti, and Volkmar, aims to provide this much-needed tempered view of the field. In careful prose, the authors examine the evidence on treatment outcomes for a number of behavior problems of special interest to clinicians working with children with autism, as well as to their families.
As a result of its strong organizational structure, this book provides a timely and much-needed addition to the literature. Rather than further obfuscating an already confused field with unsupported pronouncements, it provides a measured, comprehensive, and evaluative review of the research, identifying what we know is effective (e.g., joint attention training and milieu communication training; Prelock, Paul, and Allen, Chapter 5); what appears promising (e.g., cognitive-behavior therapy as a treatment of comorbid anxiety disorders; Wood, Fujii, and Renno, Chapter 7); and what currently has no evidence (e.g., dietary and nutritional supplements, such as gluten-free or casein-free diets; Hyman and Levy, Chapter 10)."
