Overview

This book is unique in its wide application to a number of settings. The comprehensive, practical treatment of functional assessment addresses preschool through high school levels, regular education and self-contained classroom settings, and special and regular student populations. Its strong use of vignettes and open-ended case studies promotes problem solving among readers as they identify the function of behavior, choose intervention options, and pinpoint typical functional assessment practices. Focuses on three functions of behavior—positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, and sensory stimulation/sensory regulation. Covers specific interventions by function, with coverage of intervention techniques. Encourages positive, team-based approaches to the prevention and remediation of challenging behavior. Provides practical solutions, instructing readers on how to conduct functional assessment in the classroom as well as other school settings and how to choose and apply interventions based on functional assessment.
