Ihave been asked to provide a “World View” of my early encounters with facilitated communication training (FCT) in Australia, to provide an historical perspective on its development and use here, and to offer my current interpretations of its theoretical and practical implications. This world view follows articles published in the last issue of the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, (Vol. 1, No. 2) by Biklen (1992a, 1992b), Calculator (1992a, 1992b), and McLean (1992). Readers are referred to those articles for a general background on facilitated communication training.
