This manual is a user-friendly, comprehensive description of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) model of autism treatment―the latest scientific information on what truly works in treating autism in an integrated, organized, consumable format.
The book details effective early behavioral intervention, covering topics such as challenging behavior, visual modification, parental involvement, improving language, cognition, and social skills, and ends with a section that explains how all of the treatments can be put together in real-life service provision organizations. The CARD model is highly comprehensive and provides useful clinical information to form cutting-edge treatment programs.
