WHAT IS FCT?
Facilitated Communication Training is an accessing strategy which may enable some people with complex communication needs to point to objects, pictures, symbols, words and letters for communication purposes.
(Queensland Government, Department of Families,
Disability Program, Facilitated Communication Basic Workshop 1997)
"People who may be candidates for Facilitated Communication Training are likely to be people who have movement disturbances which prevent them from pointing for communication purposes"....
"People who are considered to be candidates for Facilitated Communication Training should be assessed by someone who has the appropriate training, qualifications and skills i.e. completion of Instructor FCT training."
