Praise for the first edition, Antecedent Control

"Unlike many books in this field that offer immediately useful information but come up short, this book delivers. It promises 'innovative approaches to behavioral support,' and that is what you will find." —JASH

Challenging behavior is a significant barrier to communication, education, and positive social relationships. This practical book helps psychologists, educators, rehabilitation specialists, and other professionals recognize and address thecauses of these problems in individuals with developmental disabilities—and resolve even the most difficult behavior challenges. Incorporating the latest research on this innovative antecedent intervention approach, this update of 1998’sAntecedent Control gives readers

  • detailed new guidelines on using the approach with children and adults

  • fresh case studies that illustrate best practices

  • contributions from more pioneering experts (80% of the contributors are new to this edition)

With this solid combination of theory, research, and practical application, readers will be ready to identify the triggers of challenging behavior and address them before they become a problem.
