Statistics for Applied Behavior Analysis Practitioners and Researchers PDF Summary

Professionals who provide applied behavior analysis (ABA) services are required to use evidence-based practices and to make data-based decisions regarding assessments and interventions. Taking a modern, scientific approach to derive knowledge and make decisions necessarily requires statistical literacy. Without statistical literacy, ABA practitioners cannot take advantage of, or intelligently discuss, ongoing scientific developments in the treatment of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Statistics for Applied Behavior Analysis Practitioners provides practical and useful content for individuals who work directly with, or supervise those who work directly with, individuals with ASD. This book introduces core concepts and principles of modern statistical analysis that practitioners will need to deliver ABA services. The organization of the book works through the flow of behavior analytic service provision, aiming to help practitioners read through research, evaluate intervention options, incorporate statistics in their analysis of time-series intervention and assessment data, and effectively communicate assessment and intervention effects using statistics.
