    BUT, if you know about ABA and have read “The Me Book” from Lovaas or “Let me hear your voice” from Maurice – this book is not for you.So let me talk to you if you are a newbie to autism. This book is GREAT because it explains in ENGLISH the basics on ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) treatment for autism. It reviews case studies on choices, how to get started, funding, and other extremely important topics for newbies.It is a great book that I give to new parents with children affected with autism ALL THE TIME. But remember: if you are an advanced person been doing the autism and ABA journey for awhile, this book is NOT for you….

    I wish I’d had this book so much earlier. I cried as I read the parents’ stories and experiences–they sound just like the talks my husband and I have and our worries, hopes, and dreams for our son. This is a wonderful book of insight and advice for getting started receiving services and assuring you that you can make progress in reaching your child! Strongly recommended.

    This is an excellent book! One of the best I’ve read(and that covers quite a few!).Excellent advice for Parents just starting out in the maze of Autism treatments and also wonderful for professionals.Lots of practical advice”If someone promises you huge gains,run fast in the other direction”.”Be a questioning critical consumer”.Lots of excellent advice on choosing a program and fabulous comments from parents which capture the whole essence of dealing with Autism.This book tells us what we all know that the best thing for our children is to ‘get in their faces’ with early intensive behavioural intervention.Good luck fellow Parents!

    I would have to agree that this book is not what its title presents itself as. I was expecting a little more on how “exactly” to help my son Steven who is just recently 3 and has been diagnosed with moderate Autism Disorder. It did give me the positive boost and the push I needed to go out and get the early Intense intervention that I feel “my son” will really benefit from. It helped me to focus on the problem at hand and gave me a starting place to start my search for improving Stevens future. A good read for people new to this life change, however definately not for people looking for answers on how to actively facilitate learning. I also agree that it was a big push by the authors to use their method, and it worked on me, but I wouldn’t discount other possibilities.

    This book looks to me just as an advertisement for the school run by the authors. If you want a really good and useful book on Applied Behavioral Analysis, read “Behavioral Intervention for Young Children with Autism” by Catherine Maurice, G. Green and C. Luce. However, before reading it, read the wonderful book “Let me hear your voice”, by C. Maurice. Those two books gave me enough knowledge of ABA, so that I was able myself to do the therapy and recover my 3 year-old son from PDD in less than a year.
