    A great guide on how to set up and conduct home ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) therapy. This is one of several reference guides I use in teaching my son. The book contains a very good cirriculum and explains how to teach the tasks and record the child's progress. It also has good resources on special education and working with speech therapists. I do think the book is too dismissive of other therapy options. A great guide on how to set up and conduct home ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) therapy.
