Empowering People, Launching lives

BeyondAutism podcast series

Inspired by research, driven by practice

Our new series of podcasts provides discussion around a range of topics, all underpinned by the principles of ABA. Hear our staff and guest speakers discuss research in the field of ABA, the practice it inspired at BeyondAutism, and the positive impact seen on the lives of the individuals involved. Our desire is to share best practice, provoke conversation around existing research and consider where we need to focus our efforts in the future. As part of this, we have a particular interest in the valuable role that multidisciplinary team working has in the success of anything we do.

All of the content on these pages is free to listen to. Much of it is also CEU-accredited, with each applicable podcast providing one Type 2 Credit. For more information on how to redeem credits, click to listen to the relevant podcast.

We have grouped our podcasts into themes to help you navigate the content. Alongside our first guest speaker Ryan O’Donnell talking on the ethical standards we should be working towards, we have a number of podcasts under our first theme of ‘Building confidence and independence’.
