Biklen, Douglas; Duchan, Judith Felson
Journal of the Association for Persons with Severe Handicaps, v19 n3 p173-84 Fall 1994
This discussion of facilitated communication (FC) focuses on implications of conflicting views of retardation, science, and truth. Discussion supports FC and considers the normative view and the competence view of individuals with mental retardation, positivist and experiential approaches to research in mental retardation, and responses to questions about facilitated communication in light of these competing views.
