    If your kid has ANY obsessions that you think might influence him/her then BUY THIS BOOK NOW. I gave copies to my son's teachers, therapists, and his teachers. The concept is simple but the result is amazingly complex. We made TONS of these cards for my son and we still have some of them even years later. Many were so frequently used and handled they sort of disintegrated...this concept can be implemented anywhere anytime. This is not a main theory (like ABA) but it is a fantastic supplement.
