Expanding Horizons for New Research into Facilitated Communication

The meeting was designed to foster interdisciplinary discussion concerning future research directions for inquiring about facilitated communication and related communication strategies for people with autism and other developmental disabilities. Presentations included several by researchers who are in the midst of conducting quasi-experimental investigations of facilitated communication. Among those in attendance were Margaret Bauman, Doug Biklen, Donald Cardinal, Anne Donnellan, and Andrew Grayson. This was part of a larger conference entitled, “International Conference on Facilitation.”
