Feels like a book to help with babies-toddlers

This book is a good resource, however, I felt that it talk to how to help younger (ages 0-2) children for the most part. I didn't find that it had a lot for me. I feel that a second volume of this sort of book should be written to more handle the challenges of a 4-6 year-old with ASD.
