Fundamental Approaches to Single Subject Design and Analysis.

Single subject research is needed to answer questions about the effects of specific treatments on individuals over time. Information from single subject studies helps to document how individuals change. With single subject methodology there is no need to compromise the effects of treatment on different subjects by averaging data across groups as is done with group comparison designs. This book offers an understandable source of information for both students and practitioners about the study of single subjects. It enables the reader to interpret the literature concerned with single subject research, design studies, and analyze data. It eases the task of trying to ferret out an understandable single subject methodology. There are also step-by-step procedures describing various forms of data analysis that can be used to evaluate treatment and client progress.
