Wretches & Jabberers is a 2010 American documentary film directed by Gerardine Wurzburg and produced by Wurzburg and Douglas Biklen about two autistic men who travel the world helping other autistic people break out of their isolation.

The use of facilitated communication is shown throughout the film and was promoted by its producers. Although controversial,[3][4] Biklen continues to promote this methodology through other media.
