This review is from: Severe Behavior Problems: A Functional Communication Training Approach: An Intervention Program for Severe Behavior Problems (Treatment Manuals for Practitioners) (Paperback)
Durand's book is useful on so many fronts for those supporting people with learning disabilities who have challenging behaviours. Family carers, staff and other professionals are walked through the process. There is a Motivational Assessment Scale tool to aid in determining function (purpose of behaviour). Each function, that is, attention, tangible, sensory and escape, is dealt with separately with plenty of constructive ideas - through use of case studies - to teach replacement behaviours. Durand advocates non-aversive methods that will have the widest validity among those who genuinely seek to improve the life of people with learning disabilities. It is accessibly written with minimal use of technical language.

Functional Communication Training is an essential strategy to any multi-element positive behaviour support plan. It is also of great value to those simply seeking to develop the disabled person's communication skills (and our ability to communicate with them). A must read.
