7 Ways to Connect with Others Just Like Yourself

by on November 25, 2013

1. Attend An Event

If your family has an autistic member — verbal or nonverbal — we urge you to connect with us by joining us at our monthly celebrations and other events.

2. See for Yourself How Typing Works

If you believe Facilitated Communication might help someone you know, see for yourself how supported typing allows nonverbal autistics to communicate.

3. Contact Us For More Information

If you need more information about Facilitated Communication or Saved By Typing, please contact us.

4. Video Calls and Typer Technology

In addition to monthly state-of-the-art video conferences from Syracuse University, autistic typers are using many easily available technologies to connect with groups of other typers, including Google Hangouts, Skype, and Facetime on iPhones.

The articles in our Technology section will help you discover and learn to use the latest video conferencing and webinar tools that help typers interact face-to-face across town and around the globe.

5. Parents & Professionals

Sharing stories and support is an integral component of being the parent of a non-verbal autistic child. Discover other parents and their experiences with facilitated communications in our Parents & Professionals section.
