Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v26 n5 p497-512 Oct 1996
This study investigated the validity of using facilitated communication with individuals with autism (n=6) or profound cognitive impairments (n=6) on the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test-Revised (PPVT-R) when facilitators were screened from visual and auditory stimuli. Results do not validate the use of facilitated communication with the PPVT-R or any advantage between auditory and visual input. (CR)
