Social & Communication Development in Autism Spectrum Disorders: Early Identification, Diagnosis, & Intervention, edited by Tony Charman and Wendy Stone, discusses the assessment, understanding, and treatment of autism spectrum disorders. The research of experts in the field is presented to highlight the most recent advances in the treatment of ASD. Charman and Stone's latest book has received a number of positive reviews, including the following from Samuel L. Odom, PhD., of the School of Education at Indiana University: "Charman and Stone have recruited foremost authorities to summarize in clear and considerable detail what the science shows, the clinical implications of existing knowledge, and the directions toward which we need to move in further research. This book is destined to be a truly influential contribution for autism researchers, clinicians, graduate students, and policymakers."
