A concern about dissemination of behavioral technology results from a concern about the limited impact of behavior analysis. Before looking at the impact of behavior analysis on the world of action, let us first look at its impact on the world of ideas, if you will pardon my dualism. It would be of interest to get a historical perspective on how much impact behavior analysis has had. In doing so, we should keep in mind its recent emergence, its small number of participants, and the small amount of resources that have been devoted to it.

We met briefly at this year's ABA when I bought one of your wonderful t-shirts. I confess that I have yet to wear it other than when concealed by another article of clothing but am working on that.
This article reviews the negative behavior-analytic commentary on Drash and Tudor’s behavior-analytic analysis of the etiology of autistic repertoires and values. This article also asks that, in our effort to scrub it clean, we not drown Drash and Tudor’s beautiful, but fragile, new-born, behavior-analytic baby in hyper-methodological, hyper-scholarly bathwater.
