Recent advances in computer technology have revolutionized the way professionals obtain and analyze information on the behavior of individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. Practitioners, students, and researchers in the fields of developmental and behavioral disabilities will learn how to make technology work for them in this exciting book. The editors have gathered a high-profile group of contributors to discuss the latest computer equipment and software available - such as hand held optical bar code readers and hand held computers - and compiled practical strategies on how to put that equipment to work in an array of applied settings. Principles of conducting observations and analyzing the resultant data are also provided in order to enable professionals to use the new observational strategies to improve their understanding of disabilities and to help devise intervention techniques that will improve the lives of individuals with disabilities.
