“This two-book set combines an excellent guide for coaching parents with a manual for parents. It is written by experts and is very practical, providing a step-by-step approach to learning the principles and techniques. This will be of great benefit to clinicians and parents alike.”

Doody's Review Service

“This two-book set is a terrific resource for coaching parents to promote their child’s social communication development. It includes case studies, downloadable forms, and online video clips. Providers working in community and clinical settings alike will appreciate the flexibility of this intervention. Guidelines are given for use in group as well as individual formats, and for children at different stages of language development. The session-by-session framework offers numerous practical strategies for engaging parents, working collaboratively to set goals, and providing performance feedback. Troubleshooting tips and guidance for managing challenging behaviors will help parents get the most out of coaching.”

—Wendy L. Stone, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Washington; Director, Research on Early Autism Detection and Intervention (READi) Lab

“A marvelous resource, now in an updated second edition. This two-book set is flexible, evidence based, and easy to use in a range of settings with individuals or groups. Parents learn five major strategies—Focus on your child, Adjust your communication, Create opportunities, Teach new skills, and Shape the interaction—that can benefit children with a range of social communication problems, in addition to more classic autism.”

—Fred R. Volkmar, MD, Irving B. Harris Professor, Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine

“When it comes to early childhood development, parents’ knowledge and skills can make all the difference. The second editions of the Guide to Coaching Parents and the Manual for Parents are infused with the latest research. Filled with practical skill-building techniques, Project ImPACT is truly a practitioner’s dream. The two-book set—complete with PowerPoint coach slides and online video examples—provides the tools to effectively implement this excellent intervention. In my work in schools and clinics, I have seen incredibly positive results as parents implement these strategies at home in combination with a school-based program. I wholeheartedly recommend this program to practitioners working with families of children with ASD and other developmental delays.”
