Using real-life stories, interviews, and how-to's, she shares the secrets of how behavior works and how you too can use these principles. Once you get the tools, though, it's up to you to change your own habits and affect those around you. Let's change. Because we CAN.

I read a post recently and have heard a lot about this topic: arguing. Arguing happens a lot between siblings and even between kids and their parents. Well, is there a way to get your kids to stop arguing? Actually, yes there are various methods. However, the first thing you need to look at is WHY they are arguing. find the Why-Factor. This episode…
 
We andur kids all have habits we don't want to keep happening. A big one I hear from parents is that their kids won't share and we intervene to get our kids to stop. But it happens again and again. When you look at what your kids are doing that you want to change, like arguing vs sharing, you can address it two ways. You can avoid it from happening…
 
There are so many pieces to take into account for weaning, that there is likely no EXACT one way to do it. It boils down to you (as the parent), the nursing/bottle drinking y-factors, and what combination of strategies works for the 2 of you. Weaning is a big milestone. Today let's talk some hows in connection to your and your little's part.…
 
So researching online and reading books usually talks about what you little need for nutrition, step-by-step processes, and medical necessity for weaning. It does not, however, talk about the y-factor of nursing/bottle drinking and how to replace that need. Let's talk some today about that perspective to give you more support before moving into the…
 
We all talk about the ray things our kids do and how they KEEP doing them again and again. But, let's think about this. If our kids' behaviors only change when WE do. How much change are WE willing to do? What discomfort are WE willing to go through to affect change in our kids? That answer will answer this: are WE the ones actually holding our kid…
 
So, I had a plan to talk about other things for this pod. Then life hit and I thought, forget it. Today we talk about life. The last episode was about parenting at your wits end. Well, today, I am there. Taking care of me. Just showing up. But you know what I would want to hear? That someone else was going through it and makes it to the other side.…
 
So many parents of young children are being recommended early intervention only to find themselves on wait lists for months. The whole point of EI is to start support for your little ASAP, but the system does not allow for that. I offer interim services, so feel free to reach out. However, for now, let's talk about how to look at that waiting perio…
 
There are a lot of extreme opinions on whether or not to get the ASD diagnosis. Today I want to add a perspective as to maybe why you could want to take the plunge and get the diagnosis. However, the choice should always be yours as the caregiver or the individual yourself. Hopefully in this episode, however, you have some new angles to consider fo…
 
Join me this time as I take a moment to redirect the coming episodes. I am looking to connect more with parents of children who are or may not be on the Autism spectrum. Today I explain what will be happening in the coming weeks as we dive into topics that are geared more toward those of you starting your journey of early intervention services.…
 
So we all know how wise we are after a few mimosas, LOL. But the other day during brunch my friend leans forward and says, "If you want to change the world, you have to start with you." Now, this might sound a little cliche, but she had a point. I hadn't decided to change myself yet. So, it got me thinking about how real change has to come from the…
 
In this episode, I wrap up the April discussion of ABA services as it relates to the ASD community. The ABA system is not perfect, but it's big. There are a lot of things that can be adjusted and changed to make it better. However, I think the first thing we need to do is LISTEN to the autistic community and as THEM what THEY way. If the services a…
 
So for this month, we are continuing to talk about ABA services as it relates to the Autistic community. This time I talk about another elephant in the room. I dig into reasons and perspectives as to why BCBA's have a bad rep. I am not listing exact examples, but discuss where BCBA's are coming from and how, the field in general, needs to use self-…
 
Let's talk some more about the system and perspectives that surround Autism treatment. This time we have Spero's first guest, Kevin Koo. He is a fellow BCBA, great friend, and owner of Behavior from Scratch. Kevin is currently doing amazing, person-centered work within the residential-care-home population. Join us as we candidly discuss the current…
 
Let's talk some more about the ABA system as it relates to ASD. Once someone gets a diagnosis of ASD, the main recommendation is ABA treatment. But what is it and what is the system clientele are jumping into. It's not a perfect system. There are flaws and let's break them down this time. But do know that even though there are massive holes in the …
 
We've all seen the clip by now of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock. But WHY would he do it? What motivated him to do something so out of character? Was it staged?! Was it for more views?!... Let's say for argument's sake it was not staged. What then? What would drive this kind of behavioral episode? Well, let's shake down the possible behavior y-fact…
 
So we are on another talk about person-centered treatment within residential group homes. We already talked about the necessary perspective behind it, but do we know how to apply it? It is going to be a little different across clients, but that's because it is PERSON-centered. Join me as I talk about some perspectives and how-to's to implement pers…
 
When working in a residential group home I have often been asked about client/person-centered treatment. Well, I think it is more than just changing the setup. It is taking your client's perspective and wants into account accomodating to give them the most fulfilled life possible. However, we seomtimes have a lens of our own holding us back from tr…
 
Do you know that gut feeling when doing something you don't want? That's called doing it EVEN when it's uncomfortable. As humans, that does not come naturally. We are wired to avoid discomfort. It's going against the natural cycle of the y-factors. However, you can actually learn to do things that are uncomfortable. Join in and hear more about how …
