What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Dr. Cipani's work is a wonderful addition to the literature on early intervention for autism. Seven case histories are presented, in clear and accessible prose, but always backed up by objective documentation of progress made, challenges encountered, and gains achieved by each child, usually over the span of several years. The second part of the work presents an historical overview of how behavioral intervention came to be applied to the education and treatment of children diagnosed with autism, and discusses the important questions that still need to be answered in terms of treatment model variables. This work combines human interest and scholarly precision, and will prove invaluable to both parents and professionals."
--Catherine Maurice, PhD, author of Let Me Hear Your Voice
