With a strong evidence base, JASPER provides a clear, flexible structure to bolster early skills core to social communication development.

In a convenient large-size format, the manual features case examples, learning exercises, and reproducible clinical tools. Purchasers get access to a companion website where they can download and print the reproducible materials as well as a supplemental annotated bibliography.
