Use the proven PRT approach to

* improve children's motivation and performance in school
* foster friendships with peers during play dates and other social interactions
* increase positive behavior by combining functional assessment and self-management strategies
* decrease disruptive behavior
* help young adults make a smooth transition to college, career, and community life

New and revised chapters cover critical topics and the book's down-to-earth, accessible style ensures that all readers can grasp PRT principles and apply them effectively. With this proven approach backed by more than 25 years of research, professionals and families will support children with autism as they enjoy more positive interactions, more effective communication, and higher academic achievement."
