Abstract

"Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)" is an effective behavioural treatment programme widely used with children with autism to improve socially significant behaviours. This practical book gives guidance on how to develop a tailored ABA programme that includes the key features of ABA: detailed individual behaviour assessment, reinforcement strategies to encourage new behaviours and systematic programme implementation. Chapters also include individual family case studies and discuss relevant issues such as day-to-day management of programmes for both younger and older children, collaboration in the community, sibling support, school-based programmes and obtaining services. The international contributors offer practical advice on the approach needed for the successful implementation of ABA.
