"[This is] probably the best and most user-friendly description of FBAs on the market. The observation form is the one my students prefer to use in applied settings. This text provides a comprehensive description and training on the use of the observation form." - Ronald Martella, Eastern Washington University
"This is a valuable resource. It takes a complex process and clearly lays out the rationale for doing functional assessment and guidelines to accomplish it in a doable manner. It is something students will use in their daily practice." - Susan Copeland, University of New Mexico
