When you hear the term “generality”, you probably think of stimulus generalization. Or maybe it’s response generalization. Actually, “generality'“ doesn’t really mean either of those terms. Well, not exactly, though perhaps a little bit. But we’re missing the point. Which is improving our ability to develop meaningful treatments which support skill…
 
Diana: I need the reason. Don’t say money. Why do this? Rob: Why not do it? Because yesterday I walked out of the conference after losing four hours of my life and you’re cold-researching “Teen Beat” cover topics. Because the house always wins. Play long enough, you never change the contingencies, the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect arti…
 
NOTE: The original file was missing one of the code words. The new file should resolve this. Apologies to folks for the mistake. Remember when you started your first practicum? Remember the fun of filling out your fieldwork tracker? Of course you don’t because no one has EVER had fun filling that thing out. This week, we at least try to make it eas…

While science has researched the effectiveness of many augmentative and assistive communication methods, one disproven, pseudoscientific technique just keeps refusing to stay in the dustbin of history: Facilitated communication.

In 2020 the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis posted an Expression of Concern regarding Rekers & Lovaas (1973) as a step in acknowledging behavior analysis’s complicity in the pseudoscience of conversion therapy. This week we’re joined by special guests, Drs. Sarah Campau and Matthew Capriotti, as well as Book Club Guy, Alan Haberman, to talk ab…
 
If you’ve listened to this show, you know how much we love to read. Yet a huge percentage of individuals will graduate from high school lacking the proficiency to learn effectively through reading.

This week we review research related to teaching choice making, problem solving, and all kinds of big decision making, helping children move from being told what to do to deciding for …

Whether the spice of life of the lifeblood of a field, it’s important that different people engage in different actions to create a robust group of practitioners. But what does it really mean to have a variety of behavior analysts in the world? This week, Dr. Matthew Normand explains the many benefits and frequent challenges of creating a plethora …
 
With so many guests making time to join us this month, we almost didn’t have a chance to record this month’s preview! But, between our research-reading, jet-setting lifestyle, we found a peaceful—albeit much too hot—moment to head into the studio to run down what’s to come in August. We start off a variety of episodes by talking about variety itsel…

But, on this week’s episode we learned to tell both apart as well as how both techniques can be a boon (mostly) for improving the efficiency of your teaching procedures.

This week, we hit the big points of behavioral interventions for ADHD before diving into some recent articles to fine…
 
For clinicians working in schools, you probably know that being asked to write up functional behavior assessments is a nigh-weekly occurrence. And while functional analyses may be the gold standard of behavior assessment, barely 50% of BCBAs in the world regularly use them. Rather than wag our fingers for a full hour, we take a look at the literatu…
 
With summer vacation underway here at the ABA Inside Track studios, we’ve decided to take a vacation with ourselves in this month’s episodes while still checking out 14 recent articles across three different topics.

Somehow we managed to go 200+ episodes without ever directly discussing one of the oldest ABA procedures, incidental teaching.

We’ll discuss how the definition…

This week, Dr. Shahla Ala’i-Rosales discusses just that possibility as well as how we can combine a prevention approach wi…
 
Board games are so hot right now, but that doesn’t mean their only purpose is to entertain us.

With (we hope) the COVID-19 pandemic nearing its end, many behavior analysts find themselves facing burnout for the first time after the past two, grueling years.
