    What makes them so sure that the voices are hallucinations?

    I'd love to see them, too.

    I believe strongly in the supernatural and in children's perceptions, but if you ask a kid, "do you hear voices in your head," probably a fair number of them will think to themselves, of course, how else are you supposed to hear them? and answer in the affirmative.

    The question would be framed as "Do you ever hear a voice in your head that nobody else can?" or " ... if there's nobody else there?"

    The OP article quote actually says this.

    Oh. I suppose it would help if I had read it.

    I once heard voices telling me to get lots of tin foil and put it on my head. It turned out to be Alex Jones, along with some truthers, on the radio, so I just ignored it.

    For a 7 or 8 year old with an active imagination, that question is poor and will not yield valid results.
