Reflective Network Therapy (RNT): A network formed by the therapist, teacher, parents and fellow classmates reflect together with the autistic child on what has happened in the child's life. Therapy sessions are done in the classroom as part of the educational activities.

Facilitated Communication: Autistic children learn to communicate by typing on a keyboard or pointing at letters, images or other symbols to represent messages. The facilitator may help with prompts or physical support to their hands. Note: There is considerable controversy as to whether the facilitator is subconsciously influencing or creating the communication (a.k.a. the ouija board effect).
