Act for Autism 3Cs

This short feature, “So Much to Say: A Speller’s Story”, tells the tale of George Bond, a 16-year-old who is a non-speaking autistic and has recently found his voice through a process called Spelling to Communicate (S2C)™.

Whether you are a parent, caregiver, educator, professional, or simply an individual with an inquisitive mind, this film is a must-watch. It will empower you with knowledge and inspire you to make a positive impact on the lives of non-speaking individuals.

If you are interested in George’s story and want to watch more, we would love for you to join us at our in-person UK screening of SPELLERS the Movie, a documentary detailing the remarkable journey of several non-speaking autistic individuals who use Spelling to Communicate. This will be followed by an interactive Q&A session featuring researchers from the University of Cambridge, non-speaking spellers, and an experienced S2C™ practitioner from the U.S.

I think this training should be compulsory for all professionals and organisations who come in contact with children and adults with autism. thank you I loved the way you did activities aswell

Excellent workshop. I could be trained/coached by Tessa and Jayne all day long. They are both very engaging and makes you want to listen

Tessa and Jane have been absolutely brilliant. Their passion towards improving experiences for children with Autism is inspiring in itself and from the beginning you feel their passion and wealth of knowledge. Whilst working in challenging times with it all being virtual, it was still extremely helpful saving and I will definitely be recommending to people. Thank you so much.
