About the event

FlowerPetalsAdaptiveDanceCo is hosting a new documentatry as a Fundraiser for our Dance School. As always the money raised goes towards Studio Costs such as rent, costumes, and professional staff. My Son, Christopher Reynolds is non-verbal and we have been working with him on this communication strategy, Spelling to Communicate. (S2C) Similar to Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) "Non-Speaking is Not Non Thinking" Let our Voices be Heard !! Erika Reynolds, Founder & Director FlowerPetalsAdaptiveDanceCo.

About the film

Inspired by the book Underestimated, the new full-length documentary SPELLERS challenges conventional wisdom regarding a group relegated to society’s margins: nonspeakers with autism, who most “experts” believe are cognitively disabled. As the film opening asks, “What if we’ve been wrong…about every single one of them?” SPELLERS answers that question, in convincing fashion, through the stories of eight nonspeakers—Aydan, Evan, Sid, Maddie, Jamie, Vince, Cade, and Elizabeth—who all found their voice through the miraculous process of using a letterboard to communicate their thoughts and feelings. As Jamie explains, “we think, feel, and learn just like everyone else.”
