Summary If an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is diagnosed or suspected in your child aged 5 or younger, you need immediate information and support to begin helping him.

This book covers early indicators of ASD in children younger than 3 years; behaviors of 3- to 5-year-olds with a confirmed diagnosis; research on effective treatments and teaching methods; strategies for boosting play, communication, social, and self-help skills; and support for the rest of the family.
