Review of Behavioral Principles in Communicative Disorders by Maul, Findley, and Adams
The American Speech–Language–Hearing Association (2016) charges speech–language pathologists (SLPs) with treating a wide variety of communication disorders and impairments. Because all communication is behavior, it is only logical for a text whose primary audience is SLPs to focus on principles of behavior, including their applications in assessing and treating communication challenges. Behavioral Principles in Communicative Disorders, by Maul, Findley, and Adams (2016), attempts to bridge the fields of speech–language pathology and applied behavior analysis (ABA) by providing a comprehensive overview of Skinner’s behaviorism, the principles of behavior, and ABA-based strategies for improving client outcomes.
Does the Field Need a New Book on Behavioral Principles for SLPs?
