The author considers the main areas of difficulties displayed by children with autism, including social interaction, social communication, and imagination and play, while also exploring the practical role that early years practitioners have in supporting the child and helping them to develop appropriate communication and social skills.

As well as advice on working with parents, other professionals and preparing children for the move to primary school, there are specific chapters on the key aspects of behaviour and sensory issues.
