Summary "After a child's autism diagnosis, how can therapists, educators, and early interventionists best support parents and caregivers?

Building on their research project that captured the experiences of more than 60 families, the authors reflect on excerpts from dozens of interviews that reveal parents' needs, concerns, beliefs, and dreams."--Jacket.
