Facilitator training is provided in cooperation with The Institute on Communication & Inclusion (ICI,) a department of Syracuse University’s School of Education, a national leader in inclusive urban education.
For almost 20 years, the ICI has been giving a voice and a means to communicate to people with disabilities who may have otherwise been living in silence or isolation by conducting research and promoting support for people with disabilities to communicate in schools and society.
Master Trainers are facilitators who have been working with Facilitated Communication (a.k.a. Supported Typing) users for many years, have attended FC trainings ranging from introductory workshops to advanced Training of Trainers, and have become skilled and experienced to provide consultations, advice, and support to individuals with autism and their families.

Celebration of Communication
Coaching Workshop & Typers’ Practicum
Join us on Saturday October 15 at 4:00 PM for our next Celebration of Communication.
These informal gatherings provide a much-needed place for families dealing with autism to relax and have some fun, free of the pressures of typical social settings.
It’s a great way to meet and greet other families and individuals with common experiences.
Saved By Typing will be hosting a Supported Typing Coaching Workshop & Typers’ Practicum on October 28 – 30, 2016, with a Welcome Reception on Thursday, October 27.
This weekend-long program conducted by Master Trainer Marilyn Chadwick and local-area trainers will consist of separate events for both typers, their families and support persons, as well as for FC coaches, trainers, and those whose goal is to become a coach and/or trainer.

The Path to Independent Typing
For thousands of people with an ASD, the ability to communicate has been disrupted or virtually eliminated by a disorder that affects 1 in every 68 children in the US. To the “outside world,” these nonverbal individuals are considered to be mentally handicapped and uneducable…
