Moreover, a good portion of this chapter presents the position that early treatment of autism should focus more heavily on the hidden deficits of stimulus overselectivity, mutually responsive orientation, joint attention, social referencing
, and relational responding, as these are the behavioral cusps that will result in greater cognitive and language development.
