Episode 48 - Research Grab Bag IV: Bride of Grab Bag

Then, from beyond the realms of known behavior analysis comes the research grab bag.  This lumbering beast has returned yet again to bring forth research from all corners of the globe.  Gaze upon the grab bag's works, ye mighty, and despair that you have yet to learn of disguised mands, portion control, and text-message cueing.  But you will, good listener...you will!

Episode 23 - Video Modeling

It's the first full episode of the year and boy are we excited! Waaaay too excited!

This week we're turning our camera onto the world to view the instructional method that is video modeling.  While many of us may know how video modeling can teach children with autism simple play skills, did you know it can be used to teach reciprocal play? Social skills? You will at the end of our show.  We also share bonus tips on how to spend the rest of your life working on your doctorate, the secret formula of Cadbury chocolate, whether the cast of Lost would pass the Sally Anne test, and the whimsical world of Wookie holidays.

OH YEAH!
