    Autism and the Image of God with Harry and Ian

    This week, Zoe is joined by Ian Lasch and Harry Gibbins. They discuss their research on autism and the Imago Dei and how our understanding of the Image of God impacts how we treat people. Harry also shares about Dungeons and Dragons as a way of addressing this topic.

    Dr. Karen Parker: The Causes & Treatments for Autism

    Dr. Karen Parker: The Causes & Treatments for Autism
    In this episode, my guest is Dr. Karen Parker, Ph.D., professor of psychiatry and director of the Social Neurosciences Research Program at Stanford University School of Medicine. We discuss the biology of social connections and bonding in babies, children and adults. Dr. Parker explains our current understanding of autism and autism spectrum disorders: what they are, why the incidence of autism has increased so dramatically in recent years and both the current and emerging treatments for autism. We also discuss the condition formerly called “Asperger’s.” This episode ought to be highly relevant for anyone interested in child and human development, how social bonds form, and to those curious about autism and other spectrum conditions.

    University, disability and do ND people pick up accents more quickly?

    University, disability and do ND people pick up accents more quickly?

    Join Simon and special guest Danny for a discussion of autism, ADHD, the International Day of People with Disabilities and a moment for World AIDS day. We touch on work Danny is doing to make his university more accessible for students and whether neurodiversity is a disability or not.

    As an aside, friend Georgia has asked that we ask you all if anyone fancies writing to their MP about the hundreds of autistic people stuck in inpatient units because there's virtually no support pre-crisis and the Government aren't meeting its own promises on research https://www.autistica.org.uk/get-involved/break-the-cycle/write-to-your-mp
    This is a very important topic and one close to all of us here on the podcast. If you can take five minutes it really might help.

    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 5 Ep. 7: A review of “Breaking the Structuralist Barrier”

    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 5 Ep. 7: A review of “Breaking the Structuralist Barrier”

    In this episode, we look at the transformative power of behavior analysis positioned as a selection science, in tackling prevalent educational issues. Drawing upon the profound insights from the article, "Breaking the Structuralist Barrier", we discuss the principles of selectionism and explore how the principles have been actualized in the Morningside Model of Generative Instruction, a behavioral program with remarkable results on adult literacy and children's learning and attention issues. We review Morningside curricula, analyzing their key component elements and foundational tool skills. We also dive into teaching methodologies that focus on fostering component behaviors to achieve fluency, culminating in the emergence of new and complex repertoires often with minimal instruction.

    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 5 Ep. 6 - Cognitive Psychology

    CentralReach “ABA On Call” Season 5 Ep. 6 - Cognitive Psychology

    Cognitive psychology and the Cognitive Load Theory are explained through a behavior-analytic perspective. Cognitive Load Theory posits that working memory has a limited capacity, much like a bucket that can only hold so much water before it overflows. But how does the theory fare when we delve into it through the lens of behavior analysis? In the conversation, we discuss the behavior-analytic interpretations of cognitive load, offering insights into how our environment and learning experiences can shape the way our cognitive 'bucket' gets filled. We also shed light on how educators and individuals can leverage an understanding of cognitive load from a behavior analytic standpoint to optimize learning and task performance.

    Off the Rails - Apps, News and Lego

    Off the Rails - Apps, News and Lego

    As we continue in our second season, join Simon, Sam and Watt as we discuss some news articles that caught our eye. From the autism friendly train ticket guide to "woke" kids toys, we had a happy half hour looking at this from our usual atypical perspective. 

    As Simon is off to San Francisco and didn't have time to plan, record, edit and publish a full episode, this is a bit shorter than usual but worry not, we have lots more interesting things to come.

    Cures, young queers and Plutarch

    Join Simon, Kuro, Joey and guest Sam as we discuss a "cure" for autism, LGBT history and young people coming out, something Simon read about ancient Greek friendships and bad newspaper articles.

    We mentioned another podcast, Bad Gays, which discusses queer villains throughout history. We also recommended some books, Queer City by Peter Ackroyd and the upcoming Queer as Folklore by the lovely Sasha Coward.

    We are not linked to any of these amazing people but highly recommend them as interesting listens and reads.

    Authenticity Unmasked: Celebrating and Reflecting on Autism Through Art with Chris Bonnello

    Authenticity Unmasked: Celebrating and Reflecting on Autism Through Art with Chris Bonnello

    We all want to belong, but what happens when the world doesn't accept who you are?

    All of us wear (often uncomfortable, ill-fitting masks), but the masks society tells autistic people to wear degrades their authenticity and ability to recognize and be themselves.

    Chris Bonnello is an author, activist, and autism advocate. Together, we discussed neurodivergency through the artwork Mask the Decay by Mitch Christian.

    Chris talks about how autistic masking feels for him, radical acceptance, his writing journey, and what the world is missing out on by asking autistic people to deny their full selves.

    See the artworks and get all the links mentioned in the show notes.

    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.

    News Overload and Being Out in the Workplace

    News Overload and Being Out in the Workplace

    Just a short one this week with Simon and Joey left alone with a Discord channel, a recording system and avoiding doing work (Boss, if you are reading this, it was my coffee break!).

    We discuss the news of the week and how information overload can leave people confused, upset and close to breakdown (Simon is always close to breakdown - Ed.) followed by a report on the Proud in the Workplace event that took place on Thursday 7th July and whether people can feel their authentic selves in the workplace, why 41% will go back into the closet when they start their first job and whether men on Grindr call themselves bi because they need a way to express things they don't yet understand.

    Join us again next week when the rest of the crew will wrest editorial choice away from Simon once again and we will get back to celebrity pot making.
