Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[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

A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), he previously served as the coordinator of the Program in Severe Disabilities and the Program in Mild/Moderate Disabilities in the department, and teaches in both areas. He also teaches in the department's master's and doctoral programs. Dr. O'Neill's recent work has focused on strategies for supporting persons exhibiting severe problem behaviors in a variety of community settings. His current work is concerned with the areas of functional assessment, teaching communication skills as alternatives to problem behaviors, school-wide behavioral support, and gender issues in emotional/behavioral disorders.

He has worked for the past 18 years with George Sugai in development and implementation of school-wide positive behavior support (SWPBS), which is being implemented by more than 19,000 schools nationally. Research, evaluation and technical assistance outcomes from this effort indicate that investing in the development of a positive social culture is associated with improved behavioral and academic gains for students.

For fifteen years he was a Principal Researcher, Site Coordinator, and National Trainer for the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Positive Behavior Support.
