Authorship in Facilitated Communication: A Re-Analysis of a Case of Assumed Representative Authentic Writing.
Saloviita, Timo; Sariola, Heikki
Mental Retardation, v41 n5 p374-79 Oct 2003
This paper reports on analysis of three published texts attributed to a Finnish man with mental retardation and cerebral palsy using facilitated communication. Evaluation of the level of independence in writing, eye focus, reading ability, and controlled message passing concluded he was not the author of the texts. Discussion examines validation of facilitated communication as a social process. (Contains references.) (DB)
