Typing in Tongues: Interesting Observations on Facilitated Communication Do Not Establish Authorship.
Sturmey, Peter
Mental Retardation, v41 n5 p386-87 Oct 2003
This response to an article (EC 633 617) on the use of facilitated communication by a Finnish man diagnosed with mental retardation and cerebral palsy urges consideration of simpler alternative explanations (than his authorship of the texts) for the interesting text produced by the process in this case. It urges the use of double-blind, controlled procedures to determine authorship validity. (Contains 2 references.) (DB)
