""Too often behavioral interventions for young children with autism are implemented in isolated and artificial situations that result in a child's failure to acquire new skills. This book provides the much-needed framework for how to implement these proven methods in inclusive settings to promote generalization."" - Mary Noonan, Professor, Department of Special Education, University of Hawaii
