AUTISTIC DEBATE

Our 11-year-old autistic daughter has used facilitated communication for more than a year, and it has changed our lives profoundly. We are convinced that the statements the child makes are her own, since she displays a particular syntax and grammar and composes poetry with a distinctly personal style.

Facilitated communication has opened a door for the autistic that shouldn't be closed in their faces.
