480 pages
ISBN: 9780132925266

Scholarly and empirically based, this market-leading text gives students what they need to understand to use the principles and practices of applied behaviour analysis in the classroom. The content is presented clearly in a friendly, accessible, even funmanner. The ninth edition uses general education classroom-based examples and practices firmly grounded in research. Content is presented in the order of decision-making by a teacher who has a student exhibiting challenging behaviour in class or a student who needs to execute a behaviour-change project.

The text covers identifying target behaviour, collecting and graphing data, functional assessment, experimental design, arranging antecedents and consequences, and generalising behaviour change. The importance of ethical considerations in using applied behaviour analysis in the classroom is now presented at the beginning of the book to highlight the importance of applying principles and practices responsibly. The ninth edition has been thoroughly updated and revised. Included in the revision is a rewritten chapter on decreasing behaviour, additional information on using principles and practices with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders, and increased coverage of positive behavioural support with new coverage of school-wide prevention and intervention strategies.
