Now available in paperback format, Parenting with Science: Behavior Analysis Saves Mom’s Sanity brings 10 ABA strategies to parents. Written in a user-friendly and sometimes humorous tone, this book cuts through the jargon to meet parents’ needs.
Leanne Page, M.Ed., BCBA, works to bring research-based tools of ABA to people who truly need them- parents, especially parents of littles! Using real-life examples and tips, this book provides methods to increase desired behaviors and prevent as many tantrums as possible.
It is a quick read that gets to the point- how can a busy parent effectively prevent problem behavior? Intended to relate to all parents, this book would be a good tool for practitioners to share with clients.
Each chapter presents a different research-based strategy with examples and tips; there are chapters on such topics as the Premack Principle, token economies, and group contingencies.
This book answers important questions, such as, “What if you could do something, anything, to be able to stop this incessant nagging you hear coming out of your own mouth?”
One reviewer writes, “This is a cool little book. It’ s a quick read and well written. The information is easy to access and apply.” Another reviewer shares, “Lots of great ideas that are more than just ‘tricks’.”
Parenting with Science: Behavior Analysis Saves Mom’s Sanity is available exclusively through amazon.com.
Leanne Page, M.Ed., BCBA also manages the site Parentingwithaba.org where more information can be found.
