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…

On November 26th, 2019, the first Inside JABA Series podcast was published. This series was the brainchild of Dr. Linda LeBlanc, who at the time was the incoming Editor in Chief, and I have to say, doing these shows has been a highlight of producing this podcast. As I remind people often, I'm not involved in the production or publication of Behavio…
 
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.

Would you rather earn preferred items or get them for free? More technically stated, would you prefer response-contingent reinforcers over response-independent ones (and to further split hairs, if the preferred items are provided response-independently, are they really reinforcers?)? It turns out that there has been some basic and applied research …

If you're anywhere in the upper part of the northern hemisphere, you already know that fall is in the air. And with that comes the annual return of students to their community schools.
