Applying Behavior Analysis Across the Autism Spectrum is appropriate for use in training programs designed to prepare personnel for working with children with autism, and which conform to the BACB's Guidelines in terms of course coverage and the required hours of field experience for graduate and undergraduate certification.
In this second edition, Beth Sulzer-Azaroff is joined by co-authors Kathleen Dyer, Susan Dupont, and Dianne Soucy, who have added rich programmed applications from their actual practice settings. Each unit begins with a running narrative that provides a human-interest context for learning and practicing a set of basic instructional pre-programmed packages for students to master during their initial introduction to practice in the field. The narrative is then is followed by a set of well-structured materials to guide and support students as they more independently design and functionally analyze the impact of individually tailored programs
With Applying Behavior Analysis Across the Autism Spectrum, first-time practitioners will gain experience in applying their previously acquired conceptual knowledge, thereby increasing their competence.
