Teaching and Learning Technologies in Higher Education: Applied Behaviour Analysis and Autism: "Necessity is the Mother of Invention"

Teaching and Learning Technologies in Higher Education: Applied Behaviour Analysis and Autism: "Necessity is the Mother of Invention"

Date: 2010
Creator: Roll-Pettersson, Lise, 1955-; Ala'i-Rosales, Shahla; Keenan, Mickey & Dillenburger, Karola
Description: This article discusses applied behavior analysis and autism. Professionals on both international and national levels who work with children with autism are expressing the need for graduate-level training in applied behaviour analysis. The implementation of effective instruction in higher education for professionals working with children with autism and their families is a complex undertaking: the learner needs to acquire an understanding of the principles and procedures of applied behaviour analysis and also adopt this knowledge to the learning prerequisites of individuals with autism. In this paper, the authors outline some current thinking about adult education and blended learning technologies and then describe and illustrate with examples emerging possibilities of multimedia technology in the development of teaching materials. We conclude that synergies between graduate-level curriculum requirements, knowledge of adult learning, and communication technology are necessary to establish comprehensive learning environments for professionals who specialize in autism intervention.

Amygdala involvement in human avoidance, escape and approach behavior

Date: November 1, 2010
Creator: Schlund, Michael W. & Cataldo, Michael F.
Description: This article discusses amygdala involvement in human avoidance, escape and approach behavior. The authors examined amygdala reactivity to threatening cues when avoidance responding consistently prevented contact with an upcoming aversive event (money loss).

Nothing to fear? Neural systems supporting avoidance behavior in healthy youths

Nothing to fear? Neural systems supporting avoidance behavior in healthy youths

Date: August 15, 2010
Creator: Schlund, Michael W.; Siegle, Greg J.; Ladouceur, Cecile D.; Silk, Jennifer S.; Cataldo, Michael F.; Forbes, Erika E. et al.
Description: This article discusses neural systems supporting avoidance behavior in healthy youths. Presently our understanding of the neural systems supporting human avoidance is largely based on nonhuman research. Establishing the generality of nonhuman findings to healthy children is a needed first step towards advancing developmental affective neuroscience research on avoidance in childhood anxiety. Accordingly, this investigation examined brain activation patterns to threatening cues that prompted avoidance in healthy youths.

Behavioral Measures of Play

Behavioral Measures of Play

Date: 2008
Creator: Guðmundsdóttir, Kristín & Ala'i-Rosales, Shahla
Description: This paper discusses measuring play. Children with autism frequently display deficits in play skills, such as pretend play and object manipulation. This is described both in the diagnostic criteria for autism (American Psychiatric Association, 1994) and in descriptive studies on children's play (Jarrold, 2003; Williams, 2003). However, the nature of these deficits and the degree to which the play of children with autism differs in complexity and variety from the play of typically developing children is unclear (Vig, 2007). The purpose of this article is to review the importance of play in a young child's life and to discuss the importance of measuring play when designing interventions for children with autism. Furthermore, this paper will present an example of a consistent and reliable observation system that assesses the complexity and variety of play on children with autism and with typically developing children.

Generalized anxiety modulates frontal and limbic activation in major depression

Generalized anxiety modulates frontal and limbic activation in major depression

Date: February 9, 2012
Creator: Schlund, Michael W.; Verduzco, Guillermo; Cataldo, Michael F. & Hoehn-Saric, Rudolf
Description: This article explores how generalized anxiety modulates frontal and limbic activation in major depression. The authors' findings highlight frontal and limbic hypoactivation in patients with depression and comorbid anxiety and indicate that anxiety level may modulate frontal and limbic activation depending upon the emotional context.
