Autism through the Lifespan: The Eden Model
By David Holmes, Foreword, Eric Schopler

For more than twenty years, The Eden Family of Services in Princeton, New Jersey, has provided comprehensive behaviorally based services for children and adults with autism. Now Eden's founding director, David L. Holmes, Ed.D., writes about autism and the specialized programs offered at Eden, explaining how Eden's theories and practices can be replicated in other communities.

A major focus of the book is Eden's concept of lifespan services, meaning people in the program receive continuous services as needed, over their lifetime. Eden maintains a continuum of educational, residential, and employment programs to provide the seamless, permanent support network that people with autism and their families often require.

With numerous examples and case histories, Autism through the Lifespan presents an in-depth model for helping children and adults with autism that will be of interest to professionals and parents alike. It begins with an overview of what's known about autism today, then continues with discussions about Eden's approach to modifying behavior, placement and treatment, their zero reject policy, curriculum from early childhood to adulthood, staffing issues, integration, decision making, and parental roles.
