This book is intended to assist behavior analysts, special educators, and other professionals in their treatment of persons with disabilities who exhibit behavior problems in classroom settings. If you’re trying to understand behavior so that you can figure out 1) how you can behave differently, 2) how to change the environment, and 3) how to pick skills to teach to improve problem behavior, then this book is for you. The book contains nearly 50 minutes of video of Dr. Winston as he introduces each chapter and there is also a bonus embedded powerpoint presentation on how to reduce/eliminate restraint use in Chapter 12. The book will be updated in the coming weeks to contain interactive quizzes for all chapters to help summarize points and check for understanding. The book will also be updated regularly with new and interesting information. Updates are not automatic, so it will be necessary to delete the current book and download the new one.
