Episode 9 - Dr. Amarie Carnett, Assistant Professor at the University of North Texas

Dr. Carnett is an Assistant Professor in Special Education at the University of North Texas. She has been conducting research since 2011. Dr. Carnett has research interests in speech generating devices and verbal behavior. She is extroverted, enthusiastic, and very eager to change the field of autism through her research. I am currently a student in one of Dr. Carnett's classes and her research assistant, which allows me to gain valuable experience conducting research in the field. In this episode, we talk about the importance of science and research, evidence-based practices, prompting, single-subject research, reinforcement contingencies, and so much more!
