Functional Behavior Assessment for People with Autism (2nd Edition):
Making Sense of Seemingly Senseless Behavior. Parents and professionals caring for people with autism sometimes encounter baffling, challenging behaviorâ€”noncompliance, aggression, or repetitive actionsâ€”which they donâ€™t know how to stop. The key to resolving problem behavior is to first determine its purpose by conducting a functional behavior assessment (FBA). In this second edition updated with new research, case studies, and anecdotes, the authors explain FBA, considered the gold-standard of ABA-based methods. Now, thereâ€™s new material about how to do FBAs outside of clinical settingsâ€”at school, in the community, and at homeâ€”making this strategy more accessible to parents and teachers in daily life.
