Designing Teaching Strategies: A Behavior Analysis Systems Approach is the first advanced text covering teaching and supervision as applied behavior analysis. The book describes a systems science of schooling based on 65 years of basic and applied research. The procedures covered in the book are currently in use in the United States, Ireland, England, and Italy in schools that apply comprehensive Applications of Behavior Analysis to Schooling (CABAS). Children in schools that use procedures presented in the book have been found to learn four to seven times more than they did under control conditions.

Psychologists and educators will find procedures that allow them to get to the root of aberrant behavior in the classroom, using a systems approach that draws on all the players in the student's world, including teachers, parents, supervisors, administrators, and university professors. At a time when the demand for behavior analytic teachers and therapist exceeds the supply, Designing Teaching Strategies provides a blueprint to train and ensure quality applications of behavior analysis in education and child therapy settings.
