Facilitated Communication is a technique where a facilitator supports the arm or hand of a communicatively impaired person. This is done to assist a person with impaired motor skills to use a keyboard in order to help the individual develop communication skills. This procedure is controversial since most peer-reviewed studies conclude that the typed output attributed to the kids is directed or systematically determined by the therapist.
THIS METHOD IS FOUND TO CAUSE HARM AND IS NOT RECOMMENDED.
