The book is arranged in Q&A format, with simple questions and helpful single-paragraph responses. Running the gamut from understanding visual schedules to A-B-C charts (antecedents, behaviors, and consequences), Johnson's practical guide has just enough insight and information to get a program off to a great start. VERDICT: This should be required reading for any familiy embarking on an ABA program and is a commendable addition to the literature....Enthusiastically recommended. -- Library Journal (starred review)
The Parent's Guide to In-Home ABA Programs is a unique and very helpful new book that is long over-due. Reading this book will give parents a much better idea of what to expect as they embark upon ABA home programming. Besides introducing us to basic ABA principles and practices, Elle Olivia Johnson answers many questions parents frequently ask. She also raises and answers several important questions that we might never think to ask in advance about situations that could easily arise once the program gets under way. Elle shares her years of valuable experience as a knowledgeable ABA practitioner with us. Employing examples from daily life that most of us can relate to easily, she clearly explains difficult topics. Reading this book is like having a conversation with an expert and getting great advice from a good friend who has already been through an ABA home program. -- Dr Albert J. Kearney, PhD, clinical and school psychologist, and author of Understanding Applied Behavior Analysis: An Introduction to ABA for Parents, Teachers, and other Professionals
"The Parent's Guide to In-Home ABA Programs is a must read for anyone that is new to the ABA world. The author does a great job at providing example scenarios applicable to the real world. The language used is simple and basic, and allows the reader to fully gain an understanding of ABA without being overwhelmed. In addition, the author provides answers to all the questions that are going through your mind. By the end of this book, you will feel knowledgeable and comfortable in the world of ABA." -- Lindsay Hilsen, MEd, BCBA, Autism Clinical Educator and author of A Step-by-Step Curriculum for Early Learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder and A Step-by-Step ABA Curriculum for Young Learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders (Age 3-10)
Early on, as a mother of an autistic child and new to ABA programs, I had many questions and had to look for pieces of information here and there to solve the puzzle. I wish this book had been available to me sooner as it has all the answers I needed within one cover. I use it as my main reference now. -- Juliet Marovich, parent of a child with autism
