Facilitated Communication

Mamre acknowledges that communication is a fundamental human right for individuals with Complex Communication Needs. It is the basis by which individuals can be heard and fully participate in the community to live rich, inclusive and meaningful lives. However, everyone’s communication needs and abilities are unique and Mamre endeavours to provide support to families, individuals and support staff to identify and help reach communication goals.

FACILITATED COMMUNINCATION TRAINING (FCT) : FCT is a strategy that may help some people with Complex Communication Needs to point to words, letters, symbols, pictures or objects for communication purposes. It does this by a facilitator providing physical and interactional support to help an individual gain control over their pointing movements. The aim is to also to help individuals point with less physical support to become more independent in their pointing movements. Mamre is recognised as a specialist in providing FCT services to the Disability Sector for the last 10 years. We are committed to using and teaching best practice to promote and maintain the integrity of the strategy.

Supports include:

  • FCT Assessments and written report
  • Individualised training sessions
  • Workshops from Basic through to Advanced Level
  • External workshops and training for your team or organisation
