American Pacific University. Ever heard of it? Neither had I, so I ran a search on it
and found their web site. Would you like to get a Ph.D in "esoteric studies", would you
like to learn more about out of body experiences? This is the type of "education" that this
institution is furthering.
Even though,this still does not let me know what the background of the authors of this study are -
perhaps they have credentials that would make be take a second look. Ask Mr. Drummond et al to
tell us about their background.
The fact that (1) the authors are unknown in this area; (2) the University to which they
appear to be connected is bizarre at best; and (3) their study does not have any clinical trials
and no real substantial annecdotal evidence leads be to belive that a huge amount of skepticism
is in order.
Perhaps your child can be part of the clinnical studies. Perhaps it will turn out these folks are
right. But be skeptical - there are a lot of snake - oil salesmen
who are trying to use our desperation to seperate us from our money. If your friend
Drummond asks for bucks to be part of a clinical trial, run.
That's all. I'll lurk for awhile to see if you post, otherwise, look for me at Autism and Fun.
