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 detailed 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. Applied Behaviour Analysis and Autism will be a key resource for parents, teachers, social workers, psychologists, researchers, nurses, health visitors and anyone with an interest in improving the ability to cope with the world of children with autism.
