Institute on Communication and Inclusion at Syracuse University

For almost two decades the Institute on Communication and Inclusion has been giving a voice and a means to communicate to people with disabilities who may have otherwise been living in silence or isolation.

The Institute on Communication and Inclusion (ICI) conducts research and promotes support for people with disabilities to communicate in schools and society.

Formerly, the Facilitated Communication Institute, the new name, the Institute on Communication and Inclusion, represents a broadened focus developed over the past 20 years, reflecting lines of research, training and public dissemination that focus on school and community inclusion, narratives of disability and ability, and disability rights.

ICI’s initiatives stress the important relationship of communication to inclusion.
