This book examines early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) programs for young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It analyzes current research on early intervention (EI) and explains the importance of accurate, timely detection of ASD in facilitating the use of EI. Chapters address five widely researched EIBI approaches: Discrete Trial Training, Pivotal Response Training, the Early Start Denver Model, Prelinguistic Milieu Teaching, and Enhanced Milieu Teaching. This in-depth study of current EIBI approaches offers a rigorous guide to earlier and more intensive interventions for children with ASD, leading to greater autonomy and improved later life outcomes for individuals. Featured topics include: Parent-implemented interventions and related issues. Evaluations of controversial interventions used with children with ASD. Factors contributing to rising ASD prevalence. Obstacles to obtaining accurate ASD diagnosis in young children. Early Intervention for Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder is an essential resource for researchers, clinicians, and graduate students in developmental, clinical child, and school psychology, behavioral therapy/rehabilitation, social work, public health, educational policy and politics, and related psychology and behavioral health fields.

This practical guide for parents of young children with autism or developmental delays outlines simple and effective practices for developing communication, social and behavioural skills. Developmental delays and signs of autism usually show up before 18 months of age. This book is for parents of young children aged one-to-five years who are passionate about helping their child as well as learning how they can return their lives to as much normalcy as possible. This book introduces a novel approach to teaching children with developmental delays that uses the science of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) but marries it with a positive, child-friendly methodology that any parent can use - whether or not their child has delays - to learn communication skills and socialisation strategies, as well as tackle sleep, eating, toileting and behaviour challenges in a positive, effective and lasting way. This book will teach parents that they can't afford to wait and empower them to regain hope and take back control with simple practices they can implement themselves - even 15 minutes a day - to dramatically improve outcomes for their children.
