Autism Through the Lifespan

David L. Holmes
For more than twenty years, The Eden Family of Services in Princeton, New Jersey, has provided comprehensive behaviorally based services for children and adults with autism. Now Eden's founding director, David L. Holmes, Ed.D., writes about autism and the specialized programs offered at Eden in Autism Through the Lifespan, explaining how Eden's theories and practices can be replicated in other communities. With numerous examples and case histories, Autism Through the Lifespan presents an indepth model for helping children and adults with autism that will be of interest to professionals and parents alike. It begins with an overview of what's known about autism today, then continues with discussions about Eden's approach to modifying behavior, placement and treatment, their "zero reject" policy, curriculum from early childhood to adulthood, staffing issues, inclusion, decision making, and parental roles.
