A Visual Strategy for Teaching Appropriate Behavior to Individuals With Autism Spectrum and Related Disorders
Grounded in evidence-based practice, Amy Buie's Behavior Mapping
is a groundbreaking way of motivating children to make good choices and learn new skills. Better yet, due to its visual nature, this simple-to-implement strategy is effective for a range of students, regardless of age and ability level. Supported by examples and real-life vignettes, four major categories of maps are presented – Consequence Maps, Complex Behavior Maps, Language Maps, and Problem-Solving Maps covering major classroom challenges. For ease of use, owners of the book may download Behavior Map templates.
