A new paper from Emory University psychologists, reported in EurekAlert, reviews treatments which have been popularized in the past 15 years to address autism symptoms in kids.  They debunk, again, a number of them including Facilitated Communication, and argue that as responsible scientists we have an obligation to educate the public and parents about the merits of non-evidence based treatments.  The full paper can be accessed through the link at the bottom of the article if you are interested.
