Title: Early Start for Young Children with Autism/PDD: Practical Interventions
Author: McConnell, Kathleen; Ryser, Gail
This resource for teachers, parents, and therapists describes practical intervention strategies for young children (ages 2-5) with autism or other pervasive developmental disorders. It begins with some suggestions for developing and using visual communication strategies. Other topics include (for example) the establishment of routines, the use of play to teach specific skills, and the role of positive reinforcement in behavior improvement. The volume features a number of reproducible forms that can be used to construct materials like schedules and calendars. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
