My favorite ABA Therapy book!!!
Behavioral Intervention for Young Children With Autism: A Manual for Parents and Professionals is hands down my favorite ABA Therapy book!!! Catherine Maurice wrote this book after seeing her boys recover from Autism using ABA. This book does a wonderful job breaking down the steps and methods of ABA. The book is 400 pages long including the index.
What I LOVE about this book is:
It has a beginning curriculum guide, intermediate curriculum guide, and advanced guide. It shows you in each curriculum guide what your child should be working on and when to move on. I also LOVE that it has all the forms you need along with the programs and procedures writen out where you can actually understand it!! It's so easy! Go HERE to find out more about the book!
