Behavior Solutions for the Home and Community is a tool for parents, teachers, and caregivers working with a child on the autism spectrum whose behaviours are impeding their daily lives. Once they see a particular behaviour, they can quickly look up an in-the-moment solution and, then, read more about what could be causing that behaviour and, more importantly, how to overcome it.

This helpful book is intended to provide general, practical solutions for busy (and often overwhelmed) parents and caregivers. It is a handy reference guide: a "must have" for every home with a child with autism!

  • Behavior Solutions for the Home and Community is organised by behaviour for fast and easy navigation to deal with immediate problem behaviours.
