Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

For over 30 years, the author team of Alberto and Troutman has written a technically sound, systematically organized and highly-readable text for students of applied behavior analysis, behavior management, and behavior modification courses. The text continues its tradition of aiding students in their understanding of the core concepts of applied behavior analysis, how to apply these concepts in the classroom, and to use the tools and methods appropriately and ethically. Scholarly and empirically based, this market-leading text gives students what they need to understand using the principles and practices of applied behavior analysis in the classroom in a friendly, accessible–even fun–manner.

 

New to the ninth edition:

 

    • Substantially revised text: Research citations no longer interrupt the flow of the text and are gathered together at the ends of paragraphs. The complexity of the language itself has also been revised for greater accessibility.
    • Additional examples of and applications for diverse general education inclusive classroom: Clinical examples have been deleted and the chapter-ending discussion questions have been revised.
    • Updated information about using applied behavior analysis with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
    • Additional information on positive behavioral support
    • Reordered chapters: The former chapter 12, Responsible Use of Applied Behavior Analysis Procedures, has become chapter 2 which better emphasizes the importance of applying procedures ethically.
    • Chapter 9 (former Chapter 8) has been heavily revised: The concept of punishment is acknowledged to be controversial and the multiplicity of viewpoints is addressed.

I am using this textbook for my Graduate ABA course. This text is easy to understand (which is helpful because ABA is a bit heavy on the science aspect of things.) Also the readings are enjoyable, great resource.

I received my shipment very fast. The book is full of very helpful and applicable information. The material relates to teachers as well as those in th ABA field. I would highly suggest it for those just starting out, and those wanting a refresher.

I have this book for one of my classes. It is thin and not a heavy book which I like. The only think I don't like about this book is how the words are not defined on the side margins like most books I have ever had. It would be easy to find definitions and would be nice to have the definition in clear terms, instead of just through the text.
