Episode 148 - Dental Exam Tolerance w/ Dr. Kelly McConnell
While nobody really wants to go to the dentist, there’s a big difference between a grumbling as you walk in for a cleaning and hiding under the dining room table when the word “fluoride” is uttered. This week, Dr. Kelly McConnell stops by to discuss her research on helping individuals with autism tolerate dental exams, including the do’s and do not’s of working with dentists and ensuring that the program in the clinic actually results in a successful trip to the dentist’s office. 4 out of 5 dentists recommend you listen to this episode (we’re guessing). Articles discussed this episode: Allen, K.D., & Wallace, D.P. (2013). Effectiveness of using noncontingent escape for general behavior management in a pediatric dental clinic.

#155: Four-Legged Friends
Humans have been accompanied by horses for thousands of years. They’ve carried us across the plains, farmed our fields, marched us into battle, fed us, clothed us, soothed us—in short, done so much to make life a little easier. But the horse is tucked away in our history, always present but never quite center stage. Susanna Forrest’s book, The Age of the Horse, puts Equus caballus squarely in the spotlight, from our first encounters to the dazzling array of skills we’ve developed alongside them. This episode originally aired in 2017. Go beyond the episode: * Susanna Forrest’s The Age of the Horse * Peruse her blog about horse history and news * Our host has definitely read every horse book on this list * Move over, Secretariat: the best horse movie of all time is Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmaron (2002) * For a dark, dreamy twist on equine friendship, watch Horse Girl (2020), starring Alison Brie Tune in every week to catch interviews with the liveliest voices from literature, the arts, sciences, history, and public affairs; reports on cutting-edge works in progress; long-form narratives; and compelling excerpts from new books.
