Right from the Start, 2nd Edition

Behavioral Intervention for Young

Children with Autism

By Sandra L. Harris, PhD and Mary Jane Weiss, PhD


Parents of young children, ages 18 months to 5 years, recently diagnosed with autism, face the critical decision of which educational treatment program to choose for their child. To help guide them through this complex decision-making process, parents can turn to the revised and updated edition of Right from the Start. This edition covers programs that use Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention, a highly effective treatment based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). New information includes the latest research on the benefits of Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention, the types of instruction used (naturalistic instruction and other teaching methods that complement ABA), home-based professionals and their credentials, school-based programs, and more.
