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 will also be added to a section on the home page so that non-members of the public can read what you have to say.
WHO CAN SEE THESE POSTS?
Any person who comes across the Facilitated Communication Interactive Community's website can see the public posts as they will also appear in a small section on the home page, which is open to the public.
These members of the public will be unable to read any forum posts outside of the 'Public Posts' section unless they sign up to the website and are subsequently approved as a member.
HOW TO CREATE A
To create a public post, first navigate to the 'Forum' page by clicking 'Forum' in the menu at the top of the website.
Once you're on the 'Forum' page, click on the 'Public Posts' forum from the list of forum options. Then click the purple 'Start a Discussion' button on the new page that appears.

PUBLIC 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.
