    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 5 Ep. 1 - 10x clinical and research outcomes (Part 2)

    One of the hallmarks of visual analysis is trend. Trend refers to the direction of data as it changes across time. A trend line is often superimposed on a data set which behavior analysts then interpret. However, if the data are placed on a standard celeration chart a trend line is transformed to a celebration line. The celeration line quantified how fast a behavior is changing. The quantified line allows an objective evaluation of not only the direction but the precise numeric growth or decay rate of a behavior. Discussion surrounding the benefits to clinical work and research with a quantified trend line is discussed.

    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 4 Ep. 10 - 10x clinical and research outcomes (Part 1)

    Most behavior analysts use a linear graph, meaning it has equal intervals on the horizontal and vertical axis. Ratio graphs have equal intervals on the horizontal axis but a multiple/divide axis on the vertical axis. The ratio graph permits the quantification of all behavior change features. For example, level can be quantified with different means (e.g., arithmetic, geometric) or medians. When placed on a ratio graph the metrics then can be examined with a view to ratios and multiple/divide changes as contrasted with add/subtract absolute changes. The podcast discusses the technical features of different graphs and the clinical and research functions level can have.

    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 4 Ep. 9- ABA and Sports

    Sports refers to activities involving exerting oneself physically in a an individual or team format to compete against oneself or others. As such sports covers many activities found in all cultures. The science of behavior has much to offer sports. ABA can enhance individual or team performance, teach game rules, open access to entry level layers, and enhance the overall enjoyment of sports. The following podcast discusses sports and interviews Kirk Kirby of TeamABA - the largest company using ABA to improve sports behaviors.

    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 4 Ep. 8 - ABA Jobs and Issues in Special Education

    The job market for behavior analysts in special and general education has increased greatly in the past 20 years. Behavior analysts can have a caseload, they can consult in general and special education classrooms, and can even work in administration. Behavior analysts can contribute to the IEP process in several constructive ways. Additionally, contributing to or creating a schoolwide discipline program falls in the domain of the application of a science of behavior. In this episode, we also discuss do’s and don’ts of interacting with colleagues, working with a consultative model, and providing resources.

    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 4 Ep. 7 - Revisiting Kohn and Punished by Rewards

    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 4 Ep. 7 - Revisiting Kohn and Punished by Rewards

    In 1993 Alfie's Kohn's Punished by Rewards (PBR) was published. The book claimed that behavioral principles and procedures manipulated people and destroyed the potential for authentic learning. The publication of PBR was met with enthusiasm by many in the educational and psychological fields. However, PBR contains many misrepresentations of positive reinforcement and punishment. Furthermore, the solutions offered in PBR are poorly aligned with robust procedures designed to change behavior proactively and reactively. The present episode discusses Kohn's treatise, highlights several claims made in the book, the impact it has had on teachers, clinicians, and businesses, as well as practical solutions for interacting with people who may be PBR adherents.

    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 4 Ep. 6 - ABA and Conspiracy Theories

    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 4 Ep. 6 - ABA and Conspiracy Theories

    Conspiracy theories are verbal behavior that states some covert yet influential organization holds responsibility for a specific circumstance or event (e.g., the government collapsed the Twin Towers in the 9/11 attacks). Conspiracy theories have become mainstream, finding prominent adherents from politicians and news pundits to celebrities and bloggers. The conspiracy theory itself is not directly dangerous, but the advice or rule-governed behavior that proceeds can have pernicious effects. In autism treatment, the conspiracy theory that vaccines cause autism has penetrated parents and even some behavior analysts. In the following episode, we discuss the definition of conspiracy theories, provide examples in ABA, and how we can guard against them in our lives and deal with others who have them.
