No matter what your level of autism expertise, this is your game plan to start working with your child right away!

Early Intervention and Autism will guide you through your child’s early years by providing sound advice based on over twenty years of experience. In an easy-to-read, question-answer format, author James Ball explains what makes your child tick, how to get the most out of early intervention services, and how to choose the most effective treatment options.

You will be walked through a typical day in the life of a young child with autism, from the time the child wakes up to the time he goes to bed. You will learn what to do (and not do), what to say (and not say), and how to use the strategies outlined in the book to teach your child new skills, manage behaviour, and have fun while learning!
