A complete reference, it provides step-by-step instruction to identify autism spectrum disorders; use effective and evidence-based interventions; maximize reinforcers; collect and analyze data; engage in reciprocal social interactions; develop individualized curriculum, and much more. The book is divided into two main components: The Basics of Applied Behavior Analysis presents an Overview of Human Behavior; Measurement of Behavior; Consequences and Their Role in Operant Conditioning; Stimulus Control and Shaping; Functional Analysis of Problem Behavior; and Verbal Behavior and Relational Frame Theory.
