For undergraduate and Special Ed or General Ed graduate courses in Special Ed. Behavior Management and Classroom Management or Applied Behavior Analysis.Recognizing that the most-effective behavior management strategy is teaching and reinforcing appropriate behavior, this applications-targeted text again provides a thorough treatment of both the technical and the functional aspects of behavior analysis. It clearly examines appropriate implementation strategies to use in a variety of settings-from classroom and recreational venues, to day care centers and in the home. Having a solid theoretical foundation, numerous applications, field-based examples, and real-life case studies are included. In addition, he provides thoughtful consideration of the often-ignored issues encountered by classroom teachers on a daily basis: diversity, assessment, legal challenges, and specific age-related concerns.
