  1. I can't even put into words how moronic Tom Cruise is. I'm a certified associate behavior analyst & I work with children with autism, PDD, ADHD & various developmental delays. I would love to let Mr. Cruise spend a day in my shoes & see what he thinks he knows. I'm no advocate of meds but for some kids in some cases it is all that works. Ugh! What an ass!

    The pics are great though! I would have never guessed Katie Holmes was so easily lead....

  2. That is really cool that you work with kids- what exactly is a behavior analyst? are you also a psychologist or do you work sort of alongside psychologists?

  3. Actually I teach children with developmental delays and run an afterschool program and camp.

    A behavior analyst is basically someone who has recieved specialized training and become certified to teach using behavioral methods. It is a form of psychology but it's also something that is taught to special education teachers. Some of the methods of teaching children with delays focus on using reinforcers, mix/varing known tasks with with unknown and prompting.

    One of the most famous examples of behavior analysis is Pavlov's dog & operant conditioning.
