New information includes the latest research on the benefits of Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention, the types of instruction used (naturalistic instruction and other teaching methods that complement ABA), home-based professionals and their credentials, school-based programs, and more.
An Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention program consists of concentrated instruction (at least 40 hours a week) and can be based in the child's home, at a center (private or university), or more recently, in public schools. Besides the setting, there are many other variables to consider when evaluating a program, and Right from the Start explores those, including:
age of the child
access to typically developing peers
team member credentials
home support services
supervision and accountability
control over the child's education
visual and auditory distractions
availability of multidisciplinary team
Comprehensive in its coverage and full of personal insight, Right from the Start is an essential primer to help families explore the options and select the educational treatment programthat best suits them and their child's needs. The many professionals who work closely with these families can also benefit from reading this book.
