Book Description

For young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and others who have challenges in interacting and communicating, early intervention is key--and parents can play a vital role. Developed through work with hundreds of families, this book presents engaging, evidence-based techniques for enriching your child's social communication skills (up to age 6). The strategies can be easily integrated into daily routines, such as meals, bathtime, bedtime, and playtime. Designed for use as part of a therapist-guided program, the manual has a convenient large-size format and includes 20 reproducible forms. You also get access to a companion website, where you can download and print the forms for repeated use and view video clips of parents using the techniques. Professionals who want to implement Project ImPACT should purchase the authors’ two-book set (ISBN 978-1-4625-3814-0), which includes this manual plus a coach's guide.

"I have used Project ImPACT for the past 11 years with parents and always receive positive feedback. Participants often share that this was the most valuable training they have received. The Manual for Parents is organized in a systematic way that makes sense to families. Families can easily incorporate these techniques into their daily routines, and often see immediate results.”--Brenda Hancock, MEd, autism specialist, Northwest Regional Education Service District, Hillsboro, Oregon
