Description

Despite an increase in the awareness of autism, families and professionals continue to struggle to find treatments that will fulfil the individual needs of their child. From Research to Individualized Practice bridges the gap between the latest research findings and clinical practice. The authors have brought together information from both fields in order to offer the reader best practice principles and hands-on techniques. These are all exemplified by clinical case examples and vivid illustrations.
