Early Intervention & Autism

When does autism usually appear? Is it a biological or a psychological disorder? What does autism look like in real life? These questions and more are asked and answered by James Ball, a board certified behavior analyst, in his new book Early Intervention & Autism: Real-Life Questions, Real-Life Answers. The author discusses strategies for a successful early intervention program, behavior challenges and meltdowns, and useful resources for parents of children with autism spectrum disorders. Included in the back of the book are appendices with a "Day in the Life" example of the author's strategies in practice and a sample Individual Family Services Plan.
