Chapter 6 directly follows from chapter 5, continuing the exploration of the nonvoluntary share of movement. Working with autistic Lucy Blackman’s writing, the chapter takes as its starting point the way Blackman places “carrying” in front of nouns when she writes but erases it when she publishes. What does the carrying do in the context of neurodiversity? This chapter is a sustained engagement with the nonvoluntary share of movement, particularly in the context of facilitation, which is how many nonspeaking autistics come to language. A theory of facilitation is brought forth that emphasizes how facilitation activates a relational field that embraces the nonvoluntary share of movement-moving.
