CARERS/PROFESSIONALS

The Facilitated Communication Interactive Community forum has been created to allow users to connect and have open discussions outside of the allocated meeting times. The forum can also provide an opportunity for users to share writings that they wish to make publically available on the home page of the website. The forum also includes a section where carers, parents, and professionals can have discussions of their own. 

Because of the varied uses of the forum, we have created three separate instructional guides on how to post forum content. In this section, we will be describing how parents, carers, and other professionals can share posts with one another in a private forum. 

WHO CAN SEE THESE POSTS?

The only users that can see the posts in the 'Carers/Professionals' forum are those users who have been marked as either a parent, carer, teacher or therapist on their member profile. 

HOW TO CREATE A CARERS/

PROFESSIONAL POST

To create a post to share with other carers and professionals, first navigate to the 'Forum' page by clicking 'Forum' in the menu at the top of the website.

 

Once on the forum page, click on the 'Carers/Professionals' forum from the list of forum options. Then click the purple 'Start a Discussion' button on the new page that appears. 

Note: If you can't access this forum but believe you should be able to, please contact Sue Irwin so that she may update your membership profile and access permissions.

PROFESSIONALS POST (PT 2)

After you click 'Start a Discussion', you will be taken to a page that looks like the one below which includes a blank section for you to add your content. There are also buttons at the bottom of the text box that allow you to add images, videos, GIFs, and emojis to your text. 

Once you are done, click 'Publish' at the bottom of the screen.
