Syracuse, Apple, & Autism Pseudoscience

BannerMy latest Behavior & Belief column, “Syracuse, Apple, and Autism Pseudoscience,” is up at the Skeptical Inquirer. I covers a recent facilitated communication controversy on the campus of Syracuse University.

Coincidentally, April is Autism Acceptance Month, and to celebrate the occasion, Apple Computer released two beautifully produced videos. Unfortunately, in doing so, Apple has associated itself with pseudoscientific treatments for autism.

Until next time.
