An understanding of applied behavior analysis (ABA) can help teachers, therapists, and practitioners improve the lives of those for whom they are charged to care and serve.
In this introduction to ABA, Robert Pennington assembles a cast of talented researchers to describe in their own words important behavioral concepts to an uninitiated audience.
The book, comprised of 17 brief chapters, is chocked full of rich examples intended to help the reader navigate unfamiliar concepts and behavioral terminology.
The authors cover a range of topics from functional assessment and intervention to instructional strategies for teaching a range of skills to a range of populations.
It is a perfect gateway into behavior analytic practice for parents, educators, para-educators, registered behavior technicians, and related service providers.
