These two pages were handouts at the "Right to Communicate" conference in 1992. Anne McDonald, who fought a hard battle to gain her discharge from an institution in Victoria with the aid of facilitated communication (introduced to her by a worker named Rosemary Crossley), summarises the right to communicate. Professor Doug Biklen, Director of the Facilitated Communication Institute at Syracuse University, USA, summarises access to communication, the presumption of competence, legal issues and education with regard to the right to communicate.
