The title does not only cover teaching methods, but also discusses behavioral management, which is a critical skill in dealing with autism.

Next, the selection details the management of behavioral problems. The text also tackles the aims and methods of teaching, along with language problems and a method of assessment and teaching. The seventh chapter discusses organization of a school for autistic children, and the last chapter reviews some books about individual children.
