Episode 13 Preview Again????

Summer vacation is here and that's as true for the ABA Inside Track crew as it is for everyone else.  So, rather than try to podcast on location from the beach next week, we'll be rebroadcasting a classic episode featuring an interview with Dr. Peter Gerhardt on the challenges young adults and adolescents with disabilities face when entering adulthood.  But first, in errata, we share some listener emails on podcasting and mindfulness then take a moment to appreciate the awesomeness of a new microphone stand.  Nothing says vacation like admiring podcast equipment.  And, don't forget to check out the new ABA Inside Track CE store!

Episode 33 - Classroom Management

It's almost summertime for teachers in America so what better time to review some classroom management strategies to mull over for the next few months.  This week we review the timeout ribbon and mindfulness strategies and mull over some big questions.  What timeout ribbon will the most fashionable students be wearing this fall? Does mindful eating sound as gross in the classroom as it does when Rob tries it on the podcast? And does Jackie approve of the new Anne of Green Gables series on Netflix? Plus, Diana's favorite number and the worst IOA we've ever seen.  Get ready to get that classroom into shape with your pals at ABA Inside Track!

Episode 32 - SLEEEEP!!! w/ Dr. Sandy Jin

Everyone sleeps.  Some of us, not so well.  So we spend this week's episode talking about how to assess and treat sleep problems and considerations relevant to helping families implement these treatments without having nightmares about BCBAs!  And, thanks to Jackie's amazing stalking abilities, we're joined by Dr. Sandy Jin to discuss her research into the matter.  We're also joined by Rob, who has more sleep training than the average pediatrician, Diana, who can answer the popular children's question, "When is God's birthday?", and Jackie, who'll be sharing the results of her husband's participation with bedtime pass research.  This podcast provides the equivalent of eight hours of delightful dreams.

Welcome to prompting Thunderdome where only one type of prompting can survive! Will it be the classic most-to-least prompt? The odd-sounding "no-no" prompt?

Let's get ready for prompting with this week's new preview episode.  Ever wonder what the best prompts around are? We get the discussion going with a comparison of most-to-least, least-to-most, simultaneous, and no-no prompts.  But before the big discussion next week, Diana stops to finally give us all our gifts from APBA and to share some excellent listener emails.  Then we discuss Julia, the new Muppet with autism on Sesame Street.  Finally, other nonsense ensues, probably something with Jackie and terrible TV shows.

Hey hey hey! ::cow mooing sound effect:: It's J-Dog, Dr. D, and the Rob-meister, comin' at ya with an all new episode of ABA Inside Track.
