Overview

This book brings hope where despair has prevailed. It offers the prospect of early detection of prodromal signs of autism and the possibility of effective therapeutic mitigation.

Directed at the clinical practitioners who must build bridges between theory and practice, this book combines what we know with what we know that works, all for the betterment of the babies and their families. Early intervention is the treatment, the tool of the clinician, because it sits somewhere between prevention and acute care. The advances described in the book—from the medical, biological and psychological sciences—have extended our reach for better outcomes into the preverbal, the unconscious and the mental matrices that define our behavior. Stella Acquarone and her colleagues show us that we can recognize the signs of autism in infants and intervene early—and that these interventions have proved successful.
