The title of this one grabbed me and the chapter titles told me it would be relevant to our situation, and it was.
It includes lots of wonderful practical advice, all bearing a hint of common sense and lots of advice to modify things to suit your own situation. I loved the way this was written; Clements has a lot of experience with families with a child with an ASD and he has a lot of understanding of the difficulties of implementing strategies in a consistent way; he reassures parents that it is OK to slip up, as long as you get over it and move forward; he also explains where consistency is most important and provides other strategies to use until you are able to be consistent - so at least something is being done.
He also emphasises that strategies often don't work smoothly in the "real world" due to the interference of life and that many strategies while explained as units are not mutually exclusive.
He acknowledges that interventions are long-term and hard work; which as a parent we know but it is still helpful to be told by a professional - no miracles are expected; it takes hard work and commitment. I wrote 5 pages of tips from it - so it had something going for it.
If you are dealing with autisitic youths that have behavioural or emotional challenges.
If you are an educational professional.
It is worth 5 stars it gives you a good scaffold to design your own management plan for a student. With comprehensive background and strategies without wasting your time with fluff.
If you are a parent of an ASD child or teenager then this book may well be pitched to much at the education system.
