This book is an interactive resource to introduce the scientific discipline of Behaviour Analysis. Behaviour analysis is the science of behaviour, where behaviour is defined as 'anything an organism does'. Although we include many examples of the application of this science, the main focus is on the scientific analysis of behaviour from which applications are derived.
What's New in Version 1.4
A brand new tutorial on learning to observe was added as Interactive 10.2. This includes issues such as how to conduct a task analysis, how to calculate Interobserver Agreement (IOA), how to define and observe behaviour. Many video vignettes are included to allow students to practice their new skills. We also corrected some minor typos.
As a behaviour analyst working daily with parents and students I would highly recommend this book. The book is informative, visually pleasing, and helps explain key behavioural principles in an interesting everyday way. For anyone interested in Behaviour Analysis this is THE book to download. I will continue to use this book in my day-to-day work to make behaviour analysis fun!
I am mum to a boy with autism and this book is so helpful. Real science but written in an accessible and fun way: highly recommended as an intro to the science of behaviour analysis.
