Facilitating Un-facilitated Communication in Autism: How Systematic Instruction & Statistical Learning Can Unlock What’s Inside

Presented By:
Dr. Katharine Beals

Description:
Dr. Katharine Beals from Drexel University will give a brief history of Facilitated Communication (FC), its origins, how it came to the US, and how it holds up to scientific inquiry.  Dr. Beals will discuss how the purported success of FC and related methods like Rapid Prompting Method and Spelling to Communicate depends on discredited claims about how people acquire literacy skills. She will review what is actually known about language and literacy acquisition, including the efficacy of direct instruction and implicit (statistical) learning.  Dr. Beals will then share her team’s work with SentenceWeaver technology and success using direct instruction and implicit learning to enhance the language and literacy skills of students with autism.

Katharine Beals teaches at the Drexel University School of Education and the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education. She specializes in issues relating to the education of high functioning children on the autism spectrum, children with language delays, and non-native English speakers, focusing on language and literacy. Her articles on these topics have appeared on The Atlantic.com, Education Next and Education News.
