Review:

"We are in the process of redesigning our Functional Behavioral Assessment graduate course to incorporate Conducting School-Based Functional Behavioral Assessments, Second Edition, in conjunction with Crone, Horner, and Hawken's Responding to Problem Behavior in Schools, Second Edition. Our learners will use these texts and supplemental case studies to find solutions to problem behaviors in K-12 students."--Alan W. Brue, PhD, NCSP, Harold Abel School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Capella University

"This book is a 'must read' for practitioners responsible for conducting and evaluating functional behavior assessments in schools. Readers are provided with a practical, step-by-step guide for each stage of the functional behavior assessment process, from teacher interviews to intervention development. The book also includes a systematic method for evaluating the integrity of a functional behavior assessment. The addition of a chapter on brief functional analyses provides a substantial expansion from the prior edition."--Brad A. Dufrene, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southern Mississippi "I have assigned the first edition of this text in my graduate courses for the past 4 years. Students have commented on how helpful it is for learning FBA procedures and applying them in their field sites. Alumni also report returning to the book when they are practicing in the field. I am eager to share the updated second edition with my students."--Jessica Blom-Hoffman, PhD, Department of Counseling and Applied Educational Psychology, Northeastern University "This comprehensive guide for school psychologists and behavior analysts addresses a wide range of critical topics. The authors' commitment to sharing strategies for brief as well as more intensive approaches is critical to school settings that may lack resources and personnel for conducting FBAs. I really appreciate the wealth of information in this book."--Don Kincaid, EdD, Florida Positive Behavior Support Project, University of South Florida  "Steege and Watson successfully meet their goal of helping school-based practitioners conduct FBAs that are both legally defensible and grounded in best practices. The authors clearly and concisely explain the principles of functional behavioral assessment, the research base supporting its use in the school setting, and practitioners' obligations under IDEA. The inclusion of numerous case examples, sample reports, and practical tools makes this second edition a valuable resource for current practitioners and students alike."--Marie C. McGrath, PhD, Department of Graduate Psychology, Immaculata University

"I like this book and plan to use it in my Positive Behavior Support class. It offers comprehensive, A-to-Z coverage of FBA and its role in providing function-based supports to students whose behavior impedes their responsiveness to educational interventions. It is written in a colorful, lighthearted style, with lots of examples and useful forms. I recommend this book to anyone who teaches preservice classes on FBA or provides ongoing professional development to master's-level classroom teachers."--Wayne Sailor, PhD, Department of Special Education and Associate Director, Beach Center on Disability, University of Kansas
