    "This book marks a very significant milestone in the development of appropriate interventions for young children with
    autism spectrum disorders. The integration of goals and teaching strategies from developmental, behavioral, and
    context-oriented approaches is unique. The chapters on theory will press even experienced interventionists to think
    about what they are attempting and why, and the detailed descriptions of activities show exactly how theory meets
    practice. With multisite research underway to test the encouraging results of early studies, this manual will enable
    interventionists to think more broadly; choose concrete, measurable, and useful goals for each child; and collaborate
    across disciplines within a comprehensive intervention framework."--Catherine Lord, PhD, ABPP, Director, University of
    Michigan Autism and Communication Disorders Center

    "Rogers and Dawson have met an important need for early intervention service providers with this stunningly
    comprehensive manual. The great strength of the manual is its blend of scientific and practical knowledge that focuses
    on producing important developmental outcomes for children. It presents an assessment process and instrument (the Early
    Start Denver Model Curriculum Checklist) that pinpoint important developmental goals, as well as detailed information
    about practices and fidelity that will be of great benefit to service providers who want to implement the model. The
    Early Start Denver Model for Young Children with Autism is one of the best examples of translating science into
    practice; it will serve as the standard against which future treatment manuals in the field are judged."--Samuel L.
    Odom, PhD, Director, Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

    "Among the crowd of treatments, interventions, and purported cures that proliferate around autism spectrum disorders,
    the Denver Model has long stood as a beacon of empirical rigor and developmental sensitivity....Sally Rogers and Geri
    Dawson, two of the most experienced and accomplished psychologists working in autism today, have laid out the details of
    a modification of their program designed for toddlers and very young children....By conducting a carefully designed
    study before publishing their program, they have established an empirical basis for it that provides a high level of
    added value. Parents and educators who use the program have not just its authors' endorsement, but a scientific basis
    for validity. The book is written in an engaging and accessible way. One of its best features is its excellent first
    chapter, which explains in lay terms what is known about brain development and ASD....This book adds greatly to the
    growing literature on evidence-based naturalistic behavioral treatments for children with ASD. Its attention to the
    needs of children under three, now frequently diagnosed with the syndrome, as well as its comprehensive scope and
    reader-friendly style should guarantee it a well-deserved place on the bookshelves of all who are engaged in the
    difficult task of optimizing the developmental trajectory of young children with this syndrome." (Journal of Autism and
    Developmental Disorders 2009-12-11)

    "Sets an extremely high standard against which future manuals will be judged. Even for those not intending to replicate
    the programme in its entirety, the strategies for enhancing play, imitation and communication, and for improving
    parent/child interaction are potentially extremely helpful for parents and teachers, and for professionals advising
    them." (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Journal 2009-12-11)

    ----------------

    Sally J. Rogers, PhD, is Professor of Psychiatry at the MIND Institute, University of California, Davis. A developmental
    psychologist, she is involved at the international level in major clinical and research activities on autism, including
    one of the 10 Autism Centers of Excellence network projects funded by the National Institutes of Health/ National
    Institute of Child Health and Human Development, involving a multisite, randomized, controlled trial of an
    infant–toddler treatment for autism. She is also the director of an interdisciplinary postdoctoral training grant for
    autism researchers. Dr. Rogers is on the executive board of the International Society for Autism Research, is an editor
    of the journal Autism Research, and is a member of the DSM-V workgroup on autism, pervasive developmental disorder, and
    other developmental disorders. She has spent her entire career studying cognitive and social-communicative development
    and intervention in young children with disabilities and has published widely on clinical and developmental aspects of
    autism, with a particular interest in imitation problems. As a clinician, she provides evaluation, treatment, and
    consultation to children and adults with autism and their families.

    Geraldine Dawson, PhD, is Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in the School of Medicine at Duke University
    and founding Director of the Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development. A clinical psychologist and award-winning
    researcher, Dr. Dawson has published more than 200 articles and chapters and 9 books on early detection and treatment of
    autism and brain development. With Sally J. Rogers, she developed the Early Start Denver Model, the first empirically
    validated comprehensive intervention for toddlers with autism. She served as the first Chief Science Officer for Autism
    Speaks, the largest autism science and advocacy organization. Before joining the Duke faculty, Dr. Dawson served as
    Research Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and, prior to that, as Professor of
    Psychology at the University of Washington and Founding Director of the University of Washington Autism Center. A Fellow
    of the American Psychological Society and the American Psychological Association, Dr. Dawson is a recipient of the
    Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Psychological Science and awards for Valuable Service and Research
    Contributions from the Autism Society of America. Her books include the coauthored Early Start Denver Model for Young
    Children with Autism, An Early Start for Your Child with Autism and A Parent's Guide to Asperger Syndrome and
    High-Functioning Autism.
