From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: This applications-oriented book promotes an understanding of both the technical and functional aspects of applied behavior analysis, and examines appropriate implementation strategies for managing behavior wherever adults supervise the activities of children and adolescents - in the classroom, at day care centers, even at home. Based on solid theory, it integrates many practical applications, field-based examples and case studies throughout to substantiate material covered. Key Topics: Emphasizing the concept of teaching and reinforcing appropriate behavior and social skills, the book addresses important topics overlooked in most other texts of its kind, such as formal behavioral assessment and cognitive behavior modification. It devotes separate chapters to young children, adolescents, and students from diverse backgrounds, and focuses on specific strategies appropriate for these special populations. Material is enhanced with numerous practical examples, real-life vignettes, intriguing discussion questions, case studies, samples of contracts, and references at the end of each chapter. There's now updated and expanded coverage on ADHD, peer monitoring and mediation, the latest behavior management research, new assessment tools, and cultural influences on behavior, and the book highlights current situations and techniques with new vignettes and examples to involve readers in realistic, contemporary decision making. Market: For teachers and administrators.
