Description

For courses in Applied Behavior Analysis, Behavior Management and Behavior Modification. Scholarly and empirically based, this market-leading text gives students what they need to understand using the principles and practices of applied behavioral management in the classroom. The content is presented clearly, in a friendly, accessible-even fun-manner. This edition has been shortened and streamlined and chapters flow step-by-step through an actual behavior analysis, using classroom-based examples and practices firmly grounded in research. Content is presented in the order of decision-making by: 1) a teacher who has a student exhibiting challenging behavior in class; or, 2) a student who needs to execute a behavior-change project. The text covers: identifying target behavior, collecting and graphing data, functional assessment, experimental design, arranging antecedents and consequences, generalizing behavior change and discusses the importance of ethical considerations in using applied behavior analysis in the classroom.The seventh edition is improved with the addition of more multicultural considerations, a stronger emphasis on technology, a discussion on the Board Certified Behavior Analysis (BCBA), more enhanced pedagogy, and a robust Companion Website.
