Specifically written for all those families who are unable to receive funding for their child's programme, and is an invaluable tool for new tutors coming into the field. The book is a step-by-step guide to setting up and running a home programme, which applies full communication in order to meet the needs of the child more fully. It guides the reader through the various stages, showing them what to include in their programme, when, why and how. Included in the book is a section on what to do when things go wrong on your programme. It also shows how the methodologies of behaviourism and psychotherapy are combined to give a synergetic effect, with all other methods supporting these by applying calming and performance-enhancing strategies.

The method changed my son's life. It opened the world to him. This is the book which has led him to recovery. I wish to have more forthcoming books from the author as I believe she is a bank of knowledge.
