Where? Who? How? are just some of the mands for information we have coming up on next week’s episode. And rather than answer these questions by ourselves, why not mand for information from someone who researches mands for information, Dr. Sarah Lechago. In the meantime, we respond to your mands for information in errata with our normal preview-level nonsense.

Back in time for the start of the new school year,  it's our 2nd (annual?) Supervision September! All this month, we have episodes devoted solely to supervision: Supervision and technology, barriers to supervision, and supervision in training others.  That's three episodes on supervision in a row! Plus, we unveil our exciting survey on technology (hey, would you mind taking it?) and talk about our appearances at the BABAT and Thompson Center Autism conferences in October.  See you there!

No one makes it through this crazy world alone.  Whether a full-grown adult or a child with disabilities, everyone needs to be able to ask for help once in a while.  But what happens when you keep asking for help all the time? Or your need help but don't know who to ask or where you are? Next week we'll be reviewing articles that have the answers to the these questions.  But first, a whole bunch of upcoming episode and appearance reminders!

Ever sit down to take data and, as you're writing down all those pluses and minuses, tell yourself, "There's got to be a better way"? Well, I've got some good news and some bad news for you! Next week, we're talking with the newly-minted Dr. Carey about discontinuous data systems and the good, the bad, and the ugly about their use.  But first, an errata chock full of excellent emails and a brief discussion of upstate New York over-the-air broadcasts.  And Rob shares a geek fact.
