As learners with special educational, developmental, and behavioral needs are increasingly integrated into the community, it is essential that appropriate and dignified ways of responding to their needs are found. This book advocates and explores the use of alternative, nonaversive intervention procedures, demonstrating through case histories how appropriate methods can yield positive results, even for those with the most challenging behavioral problems. It will be of exceptional value to professionals in the field, as a resource for program administrators, residential care providers, rehabilitation counselors, and parents, and as a text for preservice personnel.
“Promises to have significant and widespread impact on the improvement of intervention programs designed to modify problem behaviors.”
