Source: Fierce Autistic Advocate: Clicker Training humans : It works but is it Ethical?

I am a Veterinary Technologist. What is that. It is an LPN in the veterinary world. While in college, it is required to learn dog and cat training. The method is giving a dog or cat a treat for performing a desired behavior and using the clicker at the same time. Over time the dog or cat learns that the click is the reward instead of the treat and they desire the treat. …

Yesterday it was bought to my attention that there is a TV show in the UK that shows people how to clicker train their baby. It is called “Train Your Baby Like a Dog.”

As a parent and pet professional, I have a huge problem with that, and I hope you do too. Your baby is not a dog, your baby is a human. At a very young age, they are able to communicate using sign language (the particular sign language depends on the area you live).

This is because the language center of the brain develops faster than the speech center of the brain.  Babies do have cognitive thought. They do have emotions and are very capable of expressing them. ”
