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 to share posts that can only be seen by other members of the website.
WHO CAN SEE THESE POSTS?
Only those who have signed up to the Facilitated Communication Interactive Community, and who have subsequently been approved as members, can view the Members-Only posts.
HOW TO CREATE A
To create a members-only post, 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 'Members-Only Posts' forum from the list of forum options. Then click the purple 'Start a Discussion' button on the new page that appears.

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.
