Response Paper 1 Philosophy of Science a. The potential risks of introducing a new therapeutic intervention without first testing its effectiveness is that each patient will be of a different age and weight so the dosages must be correct. There is no dosage dependency, which can lead to lethal effects of overdose. Also, if the medication was to be taken by a pregnant woman without fully knowing the side effects and correct dosage, she may cause harm to herself and the fetus. b. Dough Biklen “saves” his theory of autism and facilitated communication from the double blind test results by claiming that children with autism could communicate with the use of a “facilitator.” A facilitator is a person that helps the autistic child use a machine to make the motions of type what they want to say out. This was to help autistic children type what they are thinking as opposed to actually speaking. This helps the children communicate with, loved ones, teachers, and students. c.
