Josh was assessed by Marilyn Chadwick of the Facilitated Communication Institute at Syracuse University, New York. She continues to help and advise via Skype consultations which help us adopt a holistic approach to Josh’s communication strategies. In this video, you can see Joshua communicating using this and other methods.
“The most important thing is that I am able to communicate with the world and with my friends. I am really grateful for giving me the chance, I want and feel, all autistic people deserve.I would like to talk about Facilitated Communication. It is a brilliant form of communication because it gives people who do not talk the ability to do so. I began using Facilitated communication five years ago. My personal assistants support my arm but it is only me that does the actual typing. I have used this form of communication to publish articles in newspapers and making my DVDs. I have a number of friends who use Facilitated Communication”.
