"Classroom Pivotal Response Teaching, or CPRT, was developed to help meet the educational needs of young children with autism. CPRT (originally called Pivotal Response Training or Treatment) is a form of naturalistic behavioral intervention, based on theprinciples of applied behavior analysis (ABA), and is soundly supported in the scientific literature. This manual will describe the components of CPRT and how to implement the approach in your classroom. Although this manual is geared primarily toward preschool through grade 3 teachers, CPRT strategies can be used by a variety of professionals. Speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, behavior specialists, psychologists and other teaching professionals may all find CPRT a valuable strategy. Additionally, the techniques in this manual may be useful with typically developing children and those with a variety of special needs. Most children can benefit from this structured, systematic approach that utilizes naturally occurring teaching opportunities. One of the strengths of this approach is that it is adaptable to a wide range of teaching goals and service settings. All who teach are encouraged to integrate CPRT into their existing strategies as often as possible"--Provided by publisher.

Designed primarily for teachers and school psychologists, this text reviews the literature on behavioral processes used in school-specific techniques like contracting, self-management, and token economies. Much of the material applies to mainstream classrooms and activities, but there are also chapters dealing with hyperactivity, aggression, withdrawal, depression, and suicide. Studies of such specimen populations as autistic, delinquent, or retarded children are also cited. The authors' stated intent is to provide a balanced mix of theory and methods, so that skills can be developed with confidence in the underlying knowledge base. The heavy emphasis on research, however, makes it a valuable guide to the theoretical study of behavioral science. Readings: A Journal of Mental Health Reviews, Commentary Written for educators and school psychologists who regularly deal with children, this book provides detailed information about the procedures teachers have successfully used to obtain positive outcomes in their classrooms. The authors base their discussion on the growing body of experimental research conducted in the classroom designed to identify techniques that encourage productive, happy, caring, healthful, and skillful behavior from students. The procedures they represent are backed by solid scientific data and have achieved proven results in real world settings. The authors also provide a thorough grounding in the behavioral principles that underlie the procedures. They demonstrate the ways in which these principles, which have been formulated as a result of basic laboratory research, can be effectively applied to behavioral techniques in the classroom to better the lives of both students and teachers.

Applied behavior analysis is the top therapy for children with autism. Travis makes the case that ABA therapy is also beneficial to adults with autism. Travis shares his mind as an adult with autism on how ABA therapy helps him learn new and improved social skills and behaviors. Travis explains ABA and how it works from the autistic perspective. While many adults think ABA is bad, Travis loves it. Travis talks advanced ABA with contingencies and generalizations and shows examples of how complex teaching social skills and behaviors becomes the higher functioning the skill or behavior you are trying to teach is. Travis shares how he tries to train himself about different contingencies that can get in the way of his new behaviors and how he works hard to understand ways for him to generalize his new skill or behavior across different social contexts and environments. Travis shares how he feels his mental illness is compounded by the fact that there is not social interventions in his treatment plan like ABA therapy. Travis feels he hears voices that ask him to punish himself and hurt himself at times because he has poor social skills. ABA therapy can be used to help Travis and thousands of others like him on the spectrum advance their social skills and improve their social behaviors. ABA has also been known to help with mental illness and lessen the vocal sensations a person hears while experiencing psychosis and hearing voices. Travis will teach parents and behavior analysts how to approach ABA therapy with your child or client in this amazing book that gives a first of its kind perspective from an adult on the autism spectrum who believes ABA is not just life changing but life saving. Travis says ABA therapy or behavior analysis is for anything that is breathing. If it breathes then it is a behavior that can be worked on. Travis hopes to one day start a non-profit organization that brings ABA therapy to the forefront of the mental health world just like it is in the autism world. This book is full of tips or ideas on how to implement behavior strategies into a child or client's treatment plan that will immediately help them with autism.
