Parents and professionals caring for people with autism sometimes encounter baffling, challenging behavior--noncompliance, aggression, or repetitive actions--which they don t know how to stop. The key to resolving problem behavior is to first determine its purpose by conducting a functional behavior assessment (FBA).

In this second edition updated with new research, case studies, and anecdotes, the authors explain how clinicians conduct FBAs: measuring behavior; observing behavior and collecting data; testing the hypothesis about the behavior's function. And now, there's new material about how to do FBAs outside of clinical settings--at school, in the community, and at home--making this strategy more accessible to parents and teachers in daily life.

Review:

Recommended reading for all parents, teachers, and caregivers, as every child could benefit from the principles in this book. --Library Journal, February 1, 2015

This book is set up for a group effort--parents and educators alike. But, for anybody who deals with autistic children, there's something comforting about a book like this, of step-by-step explanations and answers for parents at their wit's end. The calm, scientific, yet easy-to understand tone creates a feeling that the answers can be found within. And it all makes logical sense. --ForeWord Reviews, Spring 2015
