“This two-book set combines an excellent guide for coaching parents with a manual for parents. It is written by experts and is very practical, providing a step-by-step approach to learning the principles and techniques. This will be of great benefit to clinicians and parents alike.”

Doody's Review Service

“A marvelous resource, now in an updated second edition. Parents learn five major strategies—Focus on your child, Adjust your communication, Create opportunities, Teach new skills, and Shape the interaction—that can benefit children with a range of social communication problems, in addition to more classic autism.”

—Fred R. Volkmar, MD, Irving B. Harris Professor, Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine

“The strategies and tools in this book empower parents to improve their child's social engagement, communication, imitation, and play. The online videos, troubleshooting tips, and guidance for managing challenging behaviors will help maximize parents' success.”

—Wendy L. Stone, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Washington; Director, Research on Early Autism Detection and Intervention (READi) Lab

“I have used Project ImPACT for the past 11 years with parents and always receive positive feedback. Participants often share that this was the most valuable training they have received. The Manual for Parents is organized in a systematic way that makes sense to families. Families can easily incorporate these techniques into their daily routines, and often see immediate results.”

—Brenda Hancock, MEd, autism specialist, Northwest Regional Education Service District, Hillsboro, Oregon
