New Words: The Communication of Students with Autism.
Biklen, Douglas; Schubert, Annegret
Remedial and Special Education (RASE), v12 n6 p46-57 Nov-Dec 1991
Twenty-one students with autism, ages 6-20, were taught to use facilitated communication to unlock their ideas and communicate through typing. Facilitated communication involves physical and emotional support for typing or pointing at letters, helping students maintain focus, and fading physical support. Subjects revealed unexpected literacy and numeracy skills. (Author/JDD)
