Children, Young People and Families
an articulate and stimulating compilation that reflects well some of the issues involved in ABA.
The Frontline of Learning Disability
This book, compromising twelve chapters by various authors, outlines the science of behaviour analysis and documents the struggle of bringing this science to the community. Parents and an international group of professionals relate their experiences of working together to apply principles discovered by the science of behavioural analysis. Parents and professionals describe how they devised and operated their own home programmes, how they set up ABA- based pre-school groups, schools and community-based, after-school activities. An approach for working with older children, Positive Behaviour Support, is documented; the struggle of parents who had to fight through the courts to access ABA and the experiences and opinions of siblings is described. Parents give their views of ABA and a list of resources details documented evidence of the effectiveness of behaviour therapy.
Aimed at parents and teachers, this volume explains the basic principles of applied behaviour analysis and describes specific cases of its use with children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders.
