Behavioral approaches for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have received a great deal of attention in recent years. Although behavioral intervention has been used in the treatment of children with autism for more than 40 years, it received renewed attention with the publication of Let Me Hear Your Voice (1993) by Catherine Maurice. In this book, Maurice described how her two children made a recovery from autism. The approach Maurice discussed in her book was a type of behavioral intervention that was implemented in the home, one-to-one, for many hours each week.
Today, there are a number of centers and independent providers who work with families setting up home-based behavioral programs. There are also center-based programs that implement an intensive behavioral approach. In addition, there are countless Web sites, e-mail lists, parent-professional organizations, books, and catalogs providing information and materials for behavior-based intervention programs.
