Episode 70 - Manding for Information w/ Dr. Sarah Lechago

We’ve got nothing but mand after mand for our special guest, Dr. Sarah Lechago. And when we stop asking about her cool model volcano, we finally get to the heart of her research on teaching children with autism to mand for information. How does she do it, you ask? Sorry, your podcast player can’t respond. You’ll just have to listen to the whole episode.

Episode 70 Preview

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.

Episode 42 - CMOs

On this week's episode we discuss CMO-R's, CMO-T's, and everything in between.  Is it possible to improve discrete trial training with a better understanding of why kids hate DTT? And how can we shift student motivation to improve discrimination in PECS training? Then, between all of Diana and Jackie's smart talkin', Rob gets the ultimate revenge on those who have wronged him! Don't forget to download this; our absence serves as a CMO-P (for podcast).
