Authors describe innovative measurement strategies and instruments that show promise in identifying ASD at a very young age. Mindful of the complexities of preschool diagnosis, the book also discusses the limitations of current diagnostic models. Following a review of screening approaches for community and clinical practice settings, evidence-based intervention models are examined in depth.

Valuable advice is provided on matching treatment to individual childrens needs, and salient directions for future research are identified.
