Understanding Applied Behavior Analysis: An Introduction to ABA for Parents, Teachers and Other Professionals by Albert J. Kearney

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is based on the premise that behaviour can be influenced by changes in environment and by the reinforcing consequences of that behaviour.

This introductory guide to ABA demystifies the basic terminology, the underlying principles and commonly-used procedures of ABA using accessible, everyday language.

Albert J. Kearney explains the kinds of learning and reinforcement processes that form the basis of ABA programs. Having covered these essential principles, he describes how the science of behaviour analysis can be effectively applied to real life behaviour problems. He looks at how behaviour is assessed and various intervention techniques that are often employed 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 behavioural education, such as precision teaching and programmed instruction.

Clear, accessible, and with a structure that is easy-to-follow, this book is an essential introduction to the discipline of ABA and its applications for parents and professionals.
