Perspectives on Early Childhood Psychology and Education Volume 1, Issue 2
The second issue of Perspectives on Early Psychology and Education has a special focus on autism and mental health along with one other general article. The manuscripts in the special focus demonstrate that ASD in early childhood is multifaceted and requires complex thinking on the part of all who work with children with ASD. Practitioners need to understand the evidence supporting different treatment options and how professionals representing diverse disciplines must work with parents to identify optimal treatments for each child. Contributors to this issue include: Susan Wilczynski, David McIntosh, Tristram Smith, Allyson Jordan, Gabrielle Tiede, Kimberley A. Zoder-Martell, Shannon Titus Dierenger, Allison C.
