From the Back Cover:

For over 30 years, the author team of Alberto and Troutman has written a technically sound, systematically organized and highly-readable text for students of applied behavior analysis, behavior management, and behavior modification courses. The text continues its tradition of aiding students in their understanding of the core concepts of applied behavior analysis, how to apply these concepts in the classroom, and to use the tools and methods appropriately and ethically. Scholarly and empirically based, this market-leading text gives students what they need to understand using the principles and practices of applied behavior analysis in the classroom in a friendly, accessible–even fun–manner.

 

New to the ninth edition:

 

    • Substantially revised text: Research citations no longer interrupt the flow of the text and are gathered together at the ends of paragraphs. The complexity of the language itself has also been revised for greater accessibility.
    • Additional examples of and applications for diverse general education inclusive classroom: Clinical examples have been deleted and the chapter-ending discussion questions have been revised.
    • Updated information about using applied behavior analysis with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
    • Additional information on positive behavioral support
    • Reordered chapters: The former chapter 12, Responsible Use of Applied Behavior Analysis Procedures, has become chapter 2 which better emphasizes the importance of applying procedures ethically.
    • Chapter 9 (former Chapter 8) has been heavily revised: The concept of punishment is acknowledged to be controversial and the multiplicity of viewpoints is addressed.
