(Part of the PRO-ED Series on Autism Spectrum Disorders–Second Edition)
Self-Management and Cognitive Behavior Interventions is a guide to using cognitive behavior modification (CBM) with students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to increase the student's self-management.
CBM approaches include self-management intervention (SMI) and cognitive behavior intervention (CBI). SMI is synonymous with self-regulation and encompasses a variety of cognitive processes, such as controlling emotions, attending to relevant information, planning future behavior, remaining flexible through unplanned setbacks, and behaving in a way that enhances the likelihood of achieving future goals. SMI is managed by the student and is used to address a wide variety of target behaviors. CBI helps individuals examine their thoughts and emotions and adopt actions that change their thinking as well as their behavior.
This book examines specific, research-based cognitive behavior interventions and self-management interventions and explores designing and implementing interventions for students with ASD.
