Gil on The Coffee Klatch Radio Show Last Night

9 Jan


Click on the above link to hear my interview with Chuck Walley on The Coffee Klatch last night. Chuck was very well informed about DIR, and we spoke a lot about the difference between DIR and ABA. Again, we know where I stand, but I am becoming increasingly impressed with how much parents dislike ABA, and how attracted they are to the methods, and the results, of DIR. Chuck spoke about his own child and how he has used DIR and its ideas in his work with his child. I also got a chance to examine the critical link I see between Autism Spectrum Disorders and the lack of abstraction in kids with the diagnosis. I think this is a pretty good interview, and I think it is worth a listen, if you have a little time.

Oh, and I hope you like the new look of the blog. Despite my love of orange, I think this makes it a little more readable. New year, new look.

Now, let’s change the world of Autism treatment for the better!

Dr. Tippy on DIR vs. ABA at Rebecca School on The Total Education Radio Show

Gil On Total Education Radio last night.

Click on the link above to hear my interview with Neil Haley on Total Education Radio last night. I got a chance to talk about the book, Respecting Autism and Rebecca School. A lot of the discussion focused on the difference between DIR and ABA, and needless to say, that got interesting! The talk starts around 47 minutes into the podcast, I was being interviewed at 11:45 pm last night, and lasts to the end of the show.

Also, Neil Haley has said we can use the link/podcast for any additional promotion, so feel free to share the link.

Hope you enjoy the interview. If you like DIR you probably will, if you are a practitioner of ABA, you probably won’t. If you are the loved one of someone with Autism or some other spectrum disorder you will probably agree with much of what is said.
