Episode 12 - Research Grab Bag

This week we take out three articles from our research grab bag, three articles related only by our enjoyment of the subject matter.  Diana teaches us all the merits of good yoga poses, Rob chides everyone for all of their filler responses, and Jackie uses bark collars to keep the hosts behaving.  Plus, Rob breaks our brand new mixer and we all reiterate Skinner's proposition that applied behavior analysis is the cat's pajamas.  That "cat's pajamas" part might be a paraphrase.

Episode 10 - Picture Activity Schedules

This week we're looking at using picture activity schedules to increase play and social interactions.  We spill the beans, break the ice, hide, seek, and jump into the wood chips all in the name of extending the literature on this excellent technology.  And, without a visual schedule, we let Rob review an article with humorous results.  Well, they would have been humorous, but he does all the editing.
