Millman claims that behaviour analysis is not used outside of the autism field. She makes this claim as someone who has learned behaviourism entirely outside of the behaviour field. She claims that sites like you linked to are lying. You linking to one of those sites repeating the lies does not disprove the lie.
Great, so according to your statement if I can’t comment on behaviorism because I don’t train dogs for a living then she can’t make claims because she isn’t a behavioral analyst. Your reasoning should not apply to just one of us, but both.
Sites like the one I posted are not lying. As someone educated and trained in the field of ABA, I have learned, advised and implemented ABA in health, business, advertising, communication, organizational leadership scenarios.
As I have multiple degrees, and you can’t accurately verify what I have or have not studied in my undergraduate, graduate and doctorate studies. You are wrong. I have studied general behaviorism, ABA, and behaviorism in the context of education. When another ABA colleague approaches me about the accuracy of my understanding, I’ll entertain their concerns.
Lastly, I attended a reception for the documentary “This Business of Autism” two days ago in Washington, DC. Spectrum Designs is a successful company that employs many individuals with autism. At their post film lecture, they referenced that they use ABA principles to train their job coaches and provide a structured, comprehensive workplace environment for individuals with autism.
Change environments, not people. ABA works. The incorrect assumptions about my level of education, personal experiences do not validate your views. As far as I am concerned I’ll do what any behaviorist would do in response to your extinction burst, ignore it.
