“This book is an easy read….It covers all aspects related to young children with autism including assessment, diagnosis, and treatments. It is useful for both clinicians and researchers in the field.”

Doody's Review Service

“An impressive, comprehensive resource on autism during infancy and toddlerhood. The contributors provide an up-to-date overview of research on screening, symptoms, and treatment. This book will be valuable to both clinicians and researchers interested in the earliest manifestations of ASD and how to improve children’s outcomes.”

—Geraldine Dawson, PhD, William Cleland Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences; Director, Duke Institute for Brain Sciences; and Director, Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development, Duke University School of Medicine

“Finally, everything you need in one place! This is a scientifically rigorous yet remarkably accessible analysis of what we have learned and what we still need to understand about autism screening, diagnosis, and treatment in infants and young children. Clinicians who are eager to translate research into high-quality care—and the children and families they serve—will benefit from this important work.”

—Alison Singer, President, Autism Science Foundation

“This outstanding work has particularly strong chapters relating to screening and diagnosis. The book thoughtfully describes current practices, barriers, controversies, and guidelines for accurate and early identification of ASD. This is a great book for students who will be screening or diagnosing children with ASD and for professionals who wish to stay abreast of current issues in the field.”
