    Our town may have called a snow day, but that won't stop us from getting out this month's preview episode! First, we'll be discussing a listener request on precision teaching before welcoming Dr. Johanna Staubitz to the program to review her work with students with emotional/behavioral disorders. Finally, we turn our sights on the analysis and treatment of perseverative verbal topics to wrap up. And that doesn't even include our live episode for patrons on ethics and conversion therapy as a follow-up to our previous discussion with Sarah Campau and Dr. Matt Capriotti and Spring Book Club poll on the subject of critical thinking and skepticism.

    We were greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Tameika Meadows, a great BCBA, author of the I Love ABA blog, and advocate for the power of behavior analysis. Tameika was also one of our earliest supporters and it was a real treat when we finally had her join as our guest. In honor of her contributions to the field, we're rebroadcasting that episode and donating all CE fees raised for it from now until June 2023 to Black Applied Behavior Analysts (BABA). Tameika was scheduled to talk at the BABA conference as one of their invited speakers. While a donation is a poor substitute to her presence, we know what is raised will go to promoting behavior analysts in the Black community as a part of the legacy she leaves behind. Though many of us have probably spent much of our careers fretting over how we can help autistic children stop engaging in stereotypic or seemingly ritualistic behavior, have we spent enough time asking whether attending to these unique interests might actually be beneficial? This week we're joined by Tameika Meadows from I Love ABA to flip the script on that old chestnut and see what research tells us about all of the benefits to appreciating a person's preferences, no matter how different they may be. This episode is available for 1.0 LEARNING CEU. All funds for this episode from December 2022-June 2023 will be donated to BABA. Articles discussed this episode: Baker, M.J. (2000).

    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 development across environments. And that's generalization. Though it doesn't quite capture the idea of generality. Look, it'll make more sense after you listen to the episode on these similar—but not the same—terms.

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 itself in ABA with Dr. Matthew Normand. Then we review how trauma-informed care can be implemented in behavior management with Saundra Bishop before delving into the related area of compassion and collaboration with Dr. Jessica Rohrer and Dr. Mary Jane Weiss. Finally, we turn our baseball caps around to rap about teaching kids to make their own decisions. Don't forget: new book club this month on the Patreon site.
