There are a number of different approaches and therapies available for children, young people and adults on the autistic spectrum, and the amount of information available on each one can be daunting for professionals and parents alike.

-cognitive-behavioural approaches

-developing social interaction

-alternative communication strategies

-developing play

-psychotherapeutic approaches

-biochemical approaches

This much-needed guide for practitioners and student teachers will also appeal to interested parents, and to anyone looking for a comparative examination of the variety of treatments on offer.
