Facilitated Communication: Tracy Thresher & John Smyth at 2011 ICI Summer Institute

Supported typers Tracy Thresher, co-star of the documentary Wretches & Jabberers, and John Smyth use supported typing to have a conversation at Syracuse University’s 2011 Institute of Communication and Inclusion Summer Institute: Connection, Communication, and Creativity.

A true example of Facilitated Communication in action!

This is the first time Tracy and John had an opportunity to type together. They also had a chance to chat with Facilitated Communication Master Trainer Harvey Lavoy. Harvey provides education, training and technical assistance to adults and children with complex communication needs, as well as their families, support staff, educational teams, schools and agencies.
