Radical Behaviorism for ABA Practitioners
Radical Behaviorism for ABA Practitioners is primarily written for students planning careers delivering ABA services and for practicing applied behavior analysts who work in some capacity as clinicians, supervisors, or administrators. Throughout its 240 pages, Radical Behaviorism for ABA Practitioners leads readers through a carefully sequenced treatment of conceptual issues that underlie the science of behavior and the everyday efforts of practitioners to resolve behavioral challenges.  Early chapters consider some basic assumptions about the nature of behavior and clarify how we learn to talk about our own behavior and everyone else’s. This foundation leads to chapters that discuss a wide range of conceptual issues in a way that shows how they are important to practitioners in their everyday work. Each chapter begins with a vignette that highlights the ways that practitioners experience the misunderstandings about behavior encouraged by vernacular dialect. Discussion then focuses on helping readers develop a way of talking about behavior that avoids these conceptual confusions and the problems they can cause for service delivery. The book approaches these topics in an informal and readable style. Pedagogical features include boxes that address special topics that supplement the chapter narrative, and each chapter ends with a summary of main points, a study guide, and a list of recommended readings. The book concludes with a glossary and bibliography.

Safe by Accident
Despite decades of improvements in occupational safety, avoidable incidents still occur daily across all industries. Recent catastrophic events in the Gulf of Mexico and the mines of West Virginia shine a blinding spotlight on the failures of safety leadership.  Why is it so hard to get safety right? In attempts to improve safety, companies institute safety programs, purchase specialized equipment, and engage in safety practices that they believe have a positive impact. Unfortunately the measure of that impact is flawed. Having a low incident rate is no guarantee that an organization is safe. Due to decades of improvements, the hazardous conditions and at-risk behavior that remain in many organizations today only occasionally result in incidents. Going a month, a year, or even several years without an incident may be a function of sheer luck. In many cases companies are Safe by Accident. Moving beyond finger pointing, behavioral safety experts and authors, Dr. Judy L. Agnew and Dr. Aubrey C. Daniels, deliver leaders a powerful message with clear calls to action in this data-based, practical approach to ensuring organizations are safe by design, not Safe by Accident. Agnew and Daniels reveal how behavioral science can help safety professionals and leaders foster a company-wide culture of safety–from the boardroom to supervisors to the employees on the front lines. Starting with the seven common safety leadership practices that don’t work (and what to do instead) to broader and more strategic recommendations that leaders can incorporate to create a high-performance safety culture, this book is essential for leaders who want to improve safety in their organization.

Self-help skills for people with autism: a systematic teaching approach
Learning self-help skills -- eating, dressing, toileting, and personal hygiene -- can be challenging for people with autism, but is essential for independence. This book thoroughly describes a systematic approach that parents (and educators) can use to teach basic self-care to children, ages 24 months to early teens, and even older individuals. With an encouraging tone, the authors -- behaviour analysts and psycholo-gists -- emphasise that it's worthwhile to devote the extra time and effort now to teach skills rather than have your child be forever dependent on others. The many case studies throughout the book depict individuals with deficits in specific self-care tasks, and demonstrate how a coordinated and system-atic approach is effective in teaching more complex skills. For example, a 12-year-old with the self-feeding skills of a toddler, who was excluded from the school cafeteria, is taught to stay at the table to eat a full meal using utensils. A chapter is devoted to each of the four skill areas (eating, dressing, toileting, personal hygiene) offering detailed insight and specific instruction strategies. Ap-pendices contain forms to complete for task analyses, instructional plans, and data collection. With the in-formation in this book, parents can immediately start teaching their child, or refer back to the book to fine-tune skills as their child develops.

Teaching Language to Children with Autism and other Developmental Disabilities
Teaching Language to Children with Autism and other Developmental Disabilities by by Mark L. Sundberg & James W. Partington Most children with autism or other developmental disabilities experience severe language delays or disorders. Teaching language to these children can be quite a challenge to parents and professionals. This book presents a state-of-the-art language assessment and intervention program based on B.F. Skinner's behavioral analysis of language, and the extensive body of empirical research that supports Skinner's analysis. The first section of the book provides information regarding preparation for language intervention, including a brief language assessment and a system to interpret the assessment in order to determine the best place to start intervention for an individual child. Section One also contains a chapter on augmentative communication and information on how to decide if it is necessary; and if so, which type might be the best for an individual child. Section Two focuses on the development of initial communication skills for nonverbal children, and Section Three focuses on teaching more advanced language and social skills. Section Four presents issues relevant to the implementation of a language program in a child's natural and school environments. In addition, there are a variety of data sheets and skills tracking forms located throughout the book. (312 pages) April 2013; Version 7.3
