'Author Efrosini Kalyva...writes about recent scientific research and allows the reader to consider the pros and cons of each approach so they can decide which ones to use'-Autism Eye
Therapy for any childhood disorders is the key that enables the child to make meaningful contact with his world. This is an excellent book for parents, teachers, therapists and post-graduate students in psychology and education to know about all therapies available and provides practical examples of activities that could be included in a therapy program. A must read for everyone that has the privilege to be part of the journey of a child diagnosed with autism.
This is a very easy to comprehend book which has assisted my students in their study into Autism.
For the Psychology student it contains detailed and accurate information and portrays suitable and recognised interventions.
The information is clear and extremely useful for tutors (experienced and inexperienced) working with students on the Autistic Spectrum.
The language of the book is clear and easy to understand.
A very interesting book but too academic for the majority of my students to access. I learned loads though!
This is a particularly useful book as it clearly explains the range of issues impacting on people with autism and their careers, and for social work practtioners. All students should be made aware of thsi book, particularly in preparation for placment.
This was a helpful book with the stated aim of promoting a healthy scepticism in the readers about interventions for Autism. It covers a range of potential interventions and provides a critique of the evidence for and against. This generally comes across as objective and well-balanced. There is little mention of the high levels of co-morbidity of ASD and intellectual disability and how interventions might need to be adapted (or not) in light of this. For this reason I would not suggest the book for students on an intellectual disability course.

This is an interesting book on a contemporary topic. It is well researched and covers both theoretical and practical approaches to supporting children with autism.
This book offers an insight into the treatments and interventions for ASD. It is concise, clear and objective.
This book presents information about ASD and interventions based on relevant practical experience in an objective and academic way while also providing appropriate and useful practical strategies. It has provided a relevant and insightful perspective to the notion of co-occurrence on my MA course: Dyslexia Research and Practice and British Dyslexia Association's Approved Teacher Status and Approved Practitioner Status awards.
Very good introduction to Autism. Again will be an enrichment module on our newly validated degree and therefore will be a recommended book
A highly academic textbook yet with lots of implementable strategies!
This is a very interesting, helpful and timely critique of strategies and approaches which have been claimed to "treat" autism. However, what we really need for our Primary PGCE course is a text which more directly provides avdice and guidance to the non-specialist mainstream teacher encountering autism in the primary classroom.
Good clear informative text on a number of inteventions currently used with students with ASD. I found this good level for my B.Ed course
A very useful book in terms of offering strategies to engage Autistic learners
a good up to date work on Autism
Well written, informative text that provides a good insight on ASD. I have used this text with students, who have feedback positively on the content, style and usefullness. Good book, definately on my reading list.
a very usefull book for the special needs conected to the course.
the book showed a good insight into autism for children
Excellent book relevant for range of courses (Socail Work, CYCS, HSCSCS)
