What is Facilitated communication (FC)? A technique used to help some persons with limited or no speech to communicate by typing or pointing. A facilitator provides both physical and emotional support. The physical support functions as an accommodation for neuro-motor problems that may interfere with independent pointing, which, over time, is usually faded. Some users eventually communicate without any physical contact with their facilitator. (University of Maine, U.A.P., 1995)
