Summary When your child has just been diagnosed with autism, questions and concerns immediately flood your mind. What do I need to know first? What do I need to do first? What program is right for my child? This book discusses the components of a "perfect" program for young children with autism, including a variety of proven techniques, and gives parents tools to assess whether or not they "fit" their child and their family.
