"Dr. Daily's book is written with remarkable clarity, and will be a wonderful, frequently used resource for professionals, parents, and learners wth autism. She provides a unique blend of conceptual and practical information, with an up-to-date account of the DSM-5 and all details related to coding. Her perspective of the way people with autism process information is a testament to her extensive professional experience and her understanding of living, thinking and breathing with autism. Dr. Daily's case studies, valuable teaching tips, and elaborate resources are a true gift to this field."
Aletta Sinoff, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCBA-D, COBA

"Dr. Daily has put together an excellent collection of best practices for working with children with autism. Therapists, educators and parents will value the detailed interventions as well as the excellent case studies and worksheets."Teresa Garland, MOT, OTR/L, Author of Self-Regulation Interventions and Strategies

"Key to Autsm is a must-read for professionals working in the field of autism and Dr. Daily has much to share in her 20+ years of experience working alongside individuals with ASD. It is three books in one -- a handbook about autism, an overview of empirically supported treatments, and an applied treatment workbook -- she has left no stone unturned!"Tracy Masterson, PhD, Licensed Clinical Psychologist

"While Dr. Cara Daily wrote The Key to Autism as a guide for professionals who assess and treat children and teens with autism spectrum disorders, her extraordinarily clear and practical style of communication has resulted in a book for anyone...parents, educators or family members seeking to fully understand the "whys" and "hows" of a much misudnerstood condition. The Key to Autism offers as clear and concise a summary of evidence-based practices for evaluation and treatment as one could hope for." Stephen Grcevich, MD, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiarty, Case Western Reserve Universit School of Medicine, President and Founder, Key Ministry

"Having been an educator for more than forty years, I am so glad to have Dr. Cara Daily as a colleague. Her ability to reach autistic children is amazing. This book is a fabulous resource for professionals in the autism community. It is well written and easy-to-understand with both an explanation of ASD and treatments that really work."Carole Richards, President, North Coast Education Service
