To help an individual with autism learn critical new skills and willingly participate in social interactions, a parent or educator needs to know how to capture the child's motivation. This "must have" book provides research-based, practical information in a non-technical manner so that caring individuals can help children learn critical skills that are necessary for their life's development.
