Complete Description

This revised and updated second edition reflects recent developments and introduces new key terms. Albert J. Kearney explains the kinds of learning and reinforcement processes that form the basis of ABA programs. He describes how the science of behavior analysis can be effectively applied to real life behavior and looks at assessment and intervention techniques commonly used with children who have autism and other special needs. Having laid these essential foundations, Kearney touches on more advanced topics: the applications of ABA in behavioral education, such as precision teaching and programmed instruction.
