Top 5 Recent Posts 10/08/2014

Every week on our Facebook Page, members post dozens of post on topics related to Behaviour Analysis, its applications and related issues. One purpose of this blog is to highlight some of the most “liked” posts in order to make them available to a wider audience.

5. FREE Workshops from Penn State ASD Conference

Darragh O’Regan shared an excellent resource made available by the organisers of the Penn State ASD Conference. Videos of hundreds of presentations made at the conference are available online and will be of use to ASD professionals and parents.

4. Professor Neville Blampied’s Sleep Presentation

Prof Blampied’s tour of Ireland’s universities seems to have been a success with good attendance reported at all of his workshops and presentations.  For those who were unable to attend, the Centre for Behaviour Analysis at Queen’s University recorded and uploaded his talk.  There are several other excellent video presentations available at the above link.

3. Diploma in Applied Behaviour Analysis

Keith Lyons posted a link to a new Diploma course in ABA that is being run by City Colleges in Dublin.  The course can be taken in vivo or online and promises to provide a solid introduction to behaviour analysis and its applications.

2.  The Lion King and Evidence Based Approaches

ABA’s own Superhero Behavior Man posted the below meme. It was later shared to ABA Ireland and proved popular!

1. Vince Carbone – ABA in Action

One of the most valuable and popular links posted over the past few weeks is a 1997 video featuring Vince Carbone of the Carbone Clinic working with a young child with autism. Over 7 weeks, the child moves from uncooperative and non-verbal to cooperative and verbal. It also shows Vincent working with the child’s mother to transfer the required skills to the child’s mother.

That’s all for this week.
