A Treasure Chest of Behavioral Strategies for Individuals With Autism
by Beth Fouse, Ph.D. and Maria Wheeler, M.Ed.

This book delivers exactly what it promises
a treasure chest of behavior change strategies. It's packed with easy-to-implement techniques that teachers, parents, and therapists can use to deal with the often challenging behaviors exhibited by people with autism.

Initial chapters explain why individuals with autism behave differently and how communication problems, sensory issues, and physiological needs affect their behavior. Subsequent chapters tell you how to respond to social and emotional issues, structure the environment for success, increase desired behaviors, decrease unwanted behaviors, and manage crises, including aggression, temper tantrums, self-stimulation, running away, sleep problems, and much more. Final chapters explain how to create a behavior intervention plan and how to avoid common mistakes in implementing it. Appendices present sample plans, data collection forms, and a useful resource list.
