Princeton Child Development Center Princeton Child Development Institute is nationally and internationally known for its applied behavior analysis research in autism intervention. Current research and development activities focus on language acquisition and social interaction; promotion of decision-making skills and independence from caregivers; systems analysis and construction of quality assurance systems; expansion of career options and supported-employment opportunities for young adults; and ongoing research on family-style, community-based models of residential treatment. Research leading to the development of replicable treatment models is an essential element of the Institute's programs, because it benefits not only individuals currently receiving services, but potentially, all people with autism.

Siblings: The Autism Spectrum Through Our Eyes Growing up with a sibling on the autistic spectrum can be difficult, and the needs of a child with autism can leave neurotypical children feeling overshadowed. This book recognizes that brothers and sisters of children with autism need just as much love and attention as they do. This collection of personal experiences, both good and bad, has been written by siblings for siblings. Each individual tale comes directly from real-life experience, offering empathy, constructive advice and reassurance that occasional feelings of resentment and embarrassment are entirely normal. Siblings of all ages candidly recount how being 'the neurotypical one' can be frustrating, but equally rewarding. Every story is injected with wisdom gained by young people who often have to grow up a lot more quickly than their peers. This is essential reading for children and teenagers with a sibling on the autistic spectrum, and for parents wishing to understand how autism in the family will affect their neurotypical child.
