Understanding basic behavioral principles is necessary to support adults with developmental disabilities (now called Intellectual Disabilities). This book is a conversational introduction to a variety of principles used to teach daily living skills to adults with developmental disabilities - including understanding the basics of behavior, assessing behaviors, writing plans, instructional processes, reinforcement, behavior management tips, data collection, ethical issues, and much more. It's like having a conversation with someone who has "been there and done that." This is an idea generating book designed to get you thinking about the services that you provide for the clients you support.
