Cutting Edge Therapies for Autism 2010-2011 by Siri and Lyon

This is a wonderful book full of information on all the latest therapies for children on the autism spectrum. I would recommend this to any parent of a child on the spectrum. It's a thick book that's 511 pages so it's quite comprehensive. It covers well known therapies like ABA, Verbal Behavior ABA, RDI, DIR (Floortime), Son-Rise, biomedical treatments, special diets, to therapies like therapeutic horseback riding, music therapy, auditory processing therapy, acquatic therapy, drama classes, occupational therapy, anti-epilepsy treatments and more. Really no stone is left unturned. They even list some really alternative treatments.

The authors are both fathers of children on the spectrum.

The therapies that are described could have been described in greater detail, but you do get a flavor for what the therapy does and a reader can then research a particular therapy for him or herself.

Here's a link to it on Amazon.com
