Wish you could do a better job keeping up with peer-reviewed journals? Why not listen to a podcast where behavior analysts discuss a variety of fascinating topics and the research related to them? Now you can spend your extra time thinking of ways to save the world with ABA.
So you’re telling me, if I just set some goal above my current performance—maybe even really high above my current performance—I’ll just suddenly improve? And if I pair my goal with feedback, I’ll perform even better? There’s got to be more to it than just that. Oh, listen to this podcast about goal setting research and learn all you need to know? Ok, that’ll be my first goal.
(UNLOCKED) Meaningful Differences Book Club
UNLOCKED from our Patreon page, it’s the Meaningful Differences Book Club! Voted on by our patrons in 2020, we discussed "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 i
Teaching Personal Pronouns
If I’m talking to you and you ask me to give you something from me, I know just what to do. But would an autistic child? This week we explore the challenges with personal pronouns, some possible treatment options, and whether or not mixing up your “I’s” and “you’s” really matters.
Receiving Feedback w/ Dr. Tyra Sellers + Dr. Seth Walker
While we spend a lot of time talking about supervision and the importance of giving good feedback, we haven't always acknowledged that feedback is a two-way street. Dr. Tyra Sellers and Dr. Seth Walker join us this week to remind us that it is important to receive as it is to give. And, just like giving it, receiving feedback isn't something you just pick up in school. Also, does our preference for different feedback style really make a difference in our overall performance.

I just listened to episode 79 on teaching tacting. Once I saw that you had the journal articles posted I read those first then came back to the podcast. That was by far the most informative podcast I had ever listened to. Through reading the journal articles I was linked to more references which is greatly appreciated. I like the side banter I found it entertaining, I enjoyed hearing your personal thoughts and experiences as it pertained to the topic. I laughed out loud a few times especially when I was able to see that other people are experiencing the same thing.
I also liked the references back to Skinner’s Verbal Behavior. I am going to read it along with a few classmates thanks to your podcast.
I really enjoyed the episode on asking for help and help-seeking behaviors. I liked how the purpose of each study was thoroughly discussed so that the listeners gets a sense of the importance and urgency of the research. I thought the second article on help-seeking was particularly interesting, as the researchers went to considerable lengths to transform the classroom setting to look like real-life stores. The methods and procedures described by the podcasters was vivid enough that I could visualize how the research occurred in practice. Overall, it was a great episode and I enjoyed all the Beatles references!
Episode 36: Research Grab Bag III
Super informative review. I loved how you included your thoughts on the research and what you would have done differently as well.
