Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a successful educational method for developing social and communication skills in children with autism. The use of video modelling in ABA programmes has demonstrated great effectiveness in teaching behavioural skills to autistic children, and this book explains how and why. Video modelling is an easy-to-use behaviour modification technique that uses videotaped rather than 'live' scenarios for the child to observe, concentrating the focus of attention for the child with autism and creating a highly effective stimulus for learning. Video Modelling and Behaviour Analysis provides a practical introduction to the technique, its objectives, strategies for use and evidence of its success. Illustrative case examples are supported by detailed diagrams and photographs, with clear, accessible explanations. Video Modelling and Behaviour Analysis will be a welcome addition to the practical literature on autism interventions for parents of autistic children and the professionals working with them.

With an emphasis on human behaviour, this book presents in detail both the principles of behaviour analysis and the experimental evidence underlying them, examining the factors that make such principles effective. It focuses on actual research into human behaviour problems to capitalize on its inherent fascination for students, and provides numerous graphs which illustrate the factors contributing to the effectiveness of behaviour principles.

In den letzten zehn Jahren hat die Zunahme von Autismus-Spektrum-Störungen die Frage nach wirksamen und wissenschaftlich anerkannten Therapien in den Mittelpunkt gerückt. Ausgehend von den Erfolgen der intensiven Frühförderprogramme in den USA ist auch in Deutschland ein zunehmendes Interesse an ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) und AVT (Autismus-spezifischer Verhaltenstherapie) zu beobachten. ABA/AVT wird als eine optimistische Methode zur Veränderung von Problemen und der Entwicklung von Fähigkeiten beschrieben, die von Fachkräften wie auch Eltern und Hausteams erlernt werden kann. Therapeutische Hilfen werden konkret dargestellt, wobei die Leser einen Einblick in traditionelle und neue verhaltenstherapeutische Strategien erhalten. Wir hoffen, dass dieser Band der Serie "Autismus Konkret" schwerer und leichter beeinträchtigten Kindern und Jugendlichen eine echte Chance zu einer Entwicklung gibt, so dass eine Teilhabe am Leben der Gemeinschaft möglich wird.

This thesis proposes machine learning methods for understanding scenes via behaviour analysis and online anomaly detection in video. The book introduces novel Bayesian topic models for detection of events that are different from typical activities and a novel framework for change point detection for identifying sudden behavioural changes. Behaviour analysis and anomaly detection are key components of intelligent vision systems. Anomaly detection can be considered from two perspectives: abnormal events can be defined as those that violate typical activities or as a sudden change in behaviour. Topic modelling and change-point detection methodologies, respectively, are employed to achieve these objectives. The thesis starts with the development of learning algorithms for a dynamic topic model, which extract topics that represent typical activities of a scene. These typical activities are used in a normality measure in anomaly detection decision-making. The book also proposes a novel anomaly localisation procedure. In the first topic model presented, a number of topics should be specified in advance. A novel dynamic nonparametric hierarchical Dirichlet process topic model is then developed where the number of topics is determined from data. Batch and online inference algorithms are developed. The latter part of the thesis considers behaviour analysis and anomaly detection within the change-point detection methodology. A novel general framework for change-point detection is introduced. Gaussian process time series data is considered. Statistical hypothesis tests are proposed for both offline and online data processing and multiple change point detection are proposed and theoretical properties of the tests are derived. The thesis is accompanied by open-source toolboxes that can be used by researchers and engineers.

Computer-Assisted and Web-Based Innovations in Psychology, Special Education, and Health examines the rapid evolution of technology among educational, behavioral healthcare, and human services professionals from a multidisciplinary perspective. Section I of the book focuses on Technology for Monitoring, Assessment, and Evaluation, featuring chapters about behavioral, affective, and physiological monitoring, actigraphy measurement of exercise and physical activity, technological applications for individuals with learning disabilities/ADHD, and data analysis and graphing. In Section II, Technology for Intervention, the chapters address telehealth technologies for evidence-based psychotherapy, virtual reality therapy, substance use and addictions, and video modeling. The emphasis of Section III is Technology for Special Education, with chapters on computer-based instruction, alternative and augmentative communication, and assistive technologies. Finally, Section IV considers Technology for Training, Supervision, and Practice, specifically web-sourced training and supervision, legal, regulatory, and ethical issues with telehealth modalities, and emerging systems for clinical practice. Computer-Assisted and Web-Based Innovations is a primary resource for educating students, advising professionals about recommended practices, accelerating procedural innovations, and directing research.

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is an effective behavioural treatment programme widely used with children with autism to improve socially significant behaviours. This practical book gives detailed guidance on how to develop a tailored ABA programme that includes the key features of ABA: detailed individual behaviour assessment, reinforcement strategies to encourage new behaviours and systematic programme implementation. Chapters also include individual family case studies and discuss relevant issues such as day-to-day management of programmes for both younger and older children, collaboration in the community, sibling support, school-based programmes and obtaining services. The international contributors offer practical advice on the approach needed for the successful implementation of ABA. Applied Behaviour Analysis and Autism will be a key resource for parents, teachers, social workers, psychologists, researchers, nurses, health visitors and anyone with an interest in improving the ability to cope with the world of children with autism.

This psychology textbook offers a comprehensive examination of the basic principles of behavior analysis and their application to issues of social significance. Behavioral scientists are interested in elucidating the fundamental principles that govern the behavior of human and non-human animals. Behavior Analysis is designed to meet the needs of senior undergraduate courses and postgraduate training in behavior analysis and its applications. The eleven comprehensive chapters: .consider how fundamental principles of behavior can be used in an applied setting to identify behavior to be changed, to select treatments which increase of decrease behavior, and to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions; and .give examples from various disciplines, including dietetics, education, occupational therapy, and speech therapy, as well as clinical, social, health and community psychology. In addition to covering core material essential for courses in psychology, this volume will also provide a useful account of behavioural psychology and its applied uses for students and professionals from a wide range of fields."

This book sets out the conceptual framework of behavior analysis, outlines the basic principles and findings of this scientific approach to human behavior, and shows how behavior analysis can deal with the important topics of behavioral neuroscience, resolution of human behavioral problems in applied behavior analysis, and human language and cognition. The biological basis of behavior analysis and human psychology is stressed, as is the continuity of psychological processes between human being and other animal species.
