"Now You Know Me Think More": A Journey with Autism Using Facilitated Communication Techniques
Pauline Lukey first met Ppinder Hundal when Ppinder was eight years old, at which point Ppinder was non-verbal and had no formal way of communicating. This book charts their development together as, through the use of facilitated communication techniques, Ppinder has shown herself to be an eager and increasingly fluent communicator. Beginning with the use of sign language, moving on to assisted typing (the title of this book being drawn from the first spontaneous phrase that Ppinder typed) and finally to Ppinder's current desire to learn to read and write, both authors recount their remarkable journey from Ppinder's first signs (coat, more, cookie, and finish) to her ability now to discuss her medication with her carers and converse, via laptop, with her autistic friend. This honest and moving account demonstrates the remarkable effects of facilitated communication and highlights that communication is a skill that everyone is entitled to enjoy.
