This paper explains and defines Facilitated Communication (F/C) as a technique used to help some persons with limited or no speech to communicate by typing or pointing. A facilitator provides both physical and emotional support. It examines why this treatment is used on autistic children and why the support factor is so essential in developing a communicative relationship with the child.

From the Paper:

"Ever since the syndrome of autism was first recognized and named, parents have been concerned with the lack of communication they have with their autistic children. While other aspects of autistic behavior are also extremely disturbing, the inability to understand what their children wanted, or were experiencing, was for many parents the most frustrating element. This frustration seemed as if it would be alleviated by the introduction of a new technique, known as facilitated communication."
