The editors initially planned an extensive software review, comparing packages and programs of interest to single subject and small N researchers. So many software revisions occurred during our editing process that we soon realized our analysis would be out-of-date before coming into print. Therefore, we opted to describe methods, rather than programs, in the text. Our hope is that readers can then use analysis methods available in these (and other) fine statistical packages to address their individual needs.

We appreciate the encouragement of Jack McArdle, Judith Amsel, and Kathleen Dolan, as well as the patience of our contributors.

Much of the data presented in chapter 5, "Graphics Analysis and Visual Display," and the practical clinical considerations presented therein, were gleaned from the work of behavior specialist supervisees of the senior author at South Florida State Hospital.

The authors of chapter 6, "Statistical Alternatives," wish to thank Myles Faith, Philip Good, Jack McArdle, David Rindskopf, and Richard Ittenbach for their ongoing commentary and support as the chapter emerged.
