Neurodevelopmental diseases--laboratory and clinical research


British, Irish, and American researchers report and review the application of applied behavior analysis to autistic spectrum disorders, emphasizing how the challenges of studying autism has honed the larger field of behavior analysis. They cover the characteristics of autistic spectrum disorders and behavioral approaches to their treatment; behavioral systems for intervention in autistic spectrum disorders; and family, professional, and training issues. Among specific topics are matching treatment to the function of destructive behavior, teaching verbal behavior to children and adults with development disabilities, and teaching parents to use applied behavioral analysis with their child who has autistic spectrum disorder.
