Ho ho ho! And a merry podcast! We’re back with a wintry mix of exciting topics featuring a guest we’ve been dying to have on the show, a guest we’ve been dying to have return, and a topic we’ve been dying to explore.
Dental Exam Tolerance w/ Dr. Kelly McConnell
While nobody really wants to go to the dentist, there’s a big difference between a grumbling as you walk in for a cleaning and hiding under the dining room table when the word “fluoride” is uttered. This week, Dr. Kelly McConnell stops by to discuss her research on helping individuals with autism tolerate dental exams, including the do’s and do not’s of working with dentists and ensuring that the program in the clinic actually results in a successful trip to the dentist’s office.
Meaningful Differences Book Club (PREVIEW)
For our first patrons-only book club, you voted on "Meaningful Differences" by Hart and Risley. And here it is: 2+ hours all about this classic, and sometimes controversial, book documenting Betty Hart and Todd Risley's longitudinal study exploring the home lives of 42 families to try to determine why some children develop more robust language than others. If you ever wondered where the 30 million word gap comes from, you've found it.
Sexual Wellbeing w/ Worner Leland and Barb Gross
Diana was so amazed by a talk given by our special guests, Worner Leland and Barb Gross from Sex Ed Continuing Ed, that she emailed them immediately to join us on the show. We’re thankful that they agreed and spent an evening discussing the sexual wellbeing of individuals with developmental disabilities. We discuss the danger of seeing sexual behavior as problem behavior and review the ExPLISSIT model for addressing sexual wellbeing. Rob even moves beyond his New England Puritan upbringing!
Elopement w/ Dr. Megan Boyle
If you’ve ever tried to develop a function-based treatment on elopement, you’ve probably wondered where in the research to start. The answer is start here with this week’s episode! Not only are we joined by Dr. Megan Boyle to discuss the findings of her extensive literature review on the subject, but we also get to enjoy her first-hand accounts of assessment and treatment of elopement. The hipsters call it “bolting”.

I had the pleasure of listening to Episode 91 and will definitely be moving to part 2 of the episode. It was great to hear your perspectives on Sidman’s work. I’m a current student in the ASU Master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis program- I noticed that my professor, Dr. Hahs, was on a past episode, so I will definitely be checking that out!
