    for children with disabilities died 13 November 2005 in Milwaukee WI US at 80 years of age My colleague Janet Lerner has written these notes of remembrance and I posted them as an obituary on LD Blog Sister Joanne Marie Kliebhan Posted on 21 November 2005 6 August 2009 Author John Lloyd Categories News Obituaries 1 Comment Dismay over Syracuse Appointment of Dean STATEMENT OF DISAPPROVAL OF THE RESEARCH AND TEACHER EDUCATION COMMUNITIES IN SPECIAL EDUCATION OF THE APPOINTMENT OF DOUGLAS BIKLEN AS DEAN OF EDUCATION AT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY 29 October 2005 We the undersigned are fully aware that Syracuse University and its School of Education do not depend on our approval for making administrative decisions However we also recognize the responsibilities of academic institutions in making leadership appointments in their departments colleges and schools of education Now as never before research and training in education are being scrutinized and typically found culpable for the poor learning outcomes of many students Selection of a dean therefore constitutes an important and very public signal of how seriously a university views its responsibilities towards public education By selecting someone whose record constitutes an argument against rigorous science in research involving individuals with disabilities Syracuse University has sent a public message of disregard for education that undermines not only its own standing among academic institutions but also by negative example threatens the credibility of all educators engaged in rigorous research addressing critical problems in teaching and learning In our opinion it is essential that both individuals and institutions adhere to the highest standards of scientific rigor in their professional conduct We therefore express our strong disapproval of the appointment of Douglas Biklen as Dean of Education at Syracuse University for reasons that we explain Since the early 1990s Professor Biklen has persistently and in our view inadvisably promoted training in and the use of facilitated communication FC an ostensible means of communication that has been resoundingly and thoroughly discredited by many scientific studies The American Psychological Association American Psychiatric Association American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry American Association on Mental Retardation American Speech Language Hearing Association Association for Behavior Analysis American Academy of Pediatrics and the New York State Department of Health have all gone on record advising against the use of FC Furthermore the Commission for Scientific Medicine and Mental Health has expressed its criticism of Professor Biklen s appointment with which we concur As researchers and members of the teacher education communities in special education we are deeply concerned by the harm to individuals with disabilities their families therapists and teachers resulting from the use of FC The harm to which we refer includes the false hopes false accusations of abuse wasted learning opportunities and miseducation of teachers fostered by FC and training in its use Many controlled investigations by scientists who study communication education and mental health have led to a consensus that FC is if not a hoax an unreliable and discredited means of communication We find it
