The Research Basis for Autism Intervention

This volume is the outcome of a cooperative scientific workshop between researchers from Israel and North Carolina, entitled Research Frontiers in Autism: Genetics, Behavior and Intervention, held in Jerusalem, June 28-30, 1999. During this workshop, a group of professionals came together to improve their understanding of the occasional gap that appears between research results in the study of autism and clinical applications in its treatment. Each chapter in this volume includes a discussion of the direct and indirect implications of basic research for intervention. With its focus on cutting-edge research, this volume will be of interest to researchers, clinicians, and parents of children with autism.
