spectrum disorders have a responsibility to describe their procedures with enough clarity that others can replicate their approaches. Of all the interventions available, except for those discussed in Chapters 11 and 12, few interventions for these children are manualized at this time. Thus, much information is by word of mouth or informal communications. Providing treatment manuals, instructions, and procedures in print, videotape, and audiotape media will assist personnel preparation activities for improving the education of young children with autistic spectrum disorders.
