Sean is a Jedi, scholar and parent of a child with severe cognitive and physical delays. Sean and his partner Natalie were told that their young child Eirinn (fondly known as Tink)  would never walk or talk and that there was nothing that could be done for her. Sean did not accept this and began a quest to understand the underlying biochemical basis of Tink's rare gene mutation through study of the primary scientific literature. He also began a quest to discover the leading edge in teaching and behavior science. He discovered TAGteach and also the world of animal training and behavior. Through his generous sharing of his and Natalie's work with Tink, he has gained the respect and admiration of the international positive reinforcement animal training community and the international Behavior Analysis community. He is a popular speaker at conferences. Through dogged determination and careful study of the science of behavior, Sean and Natalie have taught Tink to say quite a few words and phrases, to play with toys, to feed herself and most importantly to walk and even run! Because of Tink's fragile medical condition, Tink requires regular blood draws. Sean has documented the process of teaching Tink to cooperate without signs of stress and will share this journey with us in this webinar.
