Wayne W. Fisher, PhD, BCBA-D, is the H. B. Munroe Professor of Behavioral Research in the Munroe-Meyer Institute and the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and Director of the Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders at the Munroe-Meyer Institute. Dr. Fisher's research interests include preference, choice, and the assessment and treatment of autism and severe behavior disorders. He is a recipient of the Bush Leadership Fellowship Award and the American Psychological Association (Division 25) award for distinguished contributions to applied behavioral research. Cathleen C. Piazza, PhD, is a Professor at the Munroe-Meyer Institute and the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, where she is also Director of the Pediatric Feeding Disorders Program. Dr. Piazza's research examines various aspects of feeding behavior in children with disabilities, with a focus on behavioral approaches to assessment and treatment. Henry S. Roane, PhD, BCBA-D, is Associate Professor in the Departments of Pediatrics and Psychiatry at SUNY Upstate Medical University and Director of the University's Family Behavior Analysis Clinic. He is currently an Associate Editor for Behavior Analysis in Practice and serves on the boards of directors of the Behavior Analysis Certification Board and the Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior. Dr. Roane's research and clinical interests focus on the assessment and treatment of severe behavior disorders, preference identification, and program development.
"Fisher, Piazza, and Roane have assembled leading behavior
analysts to provide a strong foundation in applied behavior
analysis (ABA). Readers will gain both an understanding of the
science and an appreciation for how ABA can benefit education,
school psychology, autism treatment, behavioral medicine, and other
disciplines. A major strength of the book is the high caliber of
the contributing authors. This handbook will be a useful text for
graduate courses, particularly those in the growing number of
university programs focused on training individuals in advanced
ABA."--Robert H. Horner, PhD, Alumni-Knight Endowed Professor of
Special Education, University of Oregon
"This is an authoritative volume for practitioners, graduate students, and academicians. Authors include many top contributors to the field, who address basic principles; assessment and intervention; and specific applications in such areas as autism, education, addiction, and gerontology. The Handbook is well organized and chock full of valuable information. A great go-to resource."--Travis Thompson, PhD, Special Education Program, University of Minnesota
"The Handbook brings together the collective expertise of leading scientists and practitioners who cover the full range of topics relevant to applied behavior analysis. The breadth and depth of topics covered make this volume unique; I have no doubt that it will become a 'must-have' book for students, practitioners, and researchers alike."--Louis Hagopian, PhD, Program Director, Neurobehavioral Unit, Kennedy Krieger Institute; Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
