It appears to be the case that FC is not delivering the results that other non physically interactional therapies can achieve, and it also leaves the student open to potential abuse.

Nonverbal communicators are already incredibly vulnerable, facilitated communication increases the likelihood of them being abused and may prevent them from accessing true communication.

People with disabilities deserve the right to access communication independently. Independently does not include hands on supports like the ones promoted through facilitated communication.
