About the event

So exciting!! The movie Spellers is on the way to our screens spreading the word that the 30% of the Autistic population (Preverbal people that don’t use spoken words to communicate) are clever and simply require a special method of communication allowing them to organize their bodies in such a way to allow their finger to independently point to letters on a letter board/ keyboard and express themselves. In the states there is Elizabeth Vossellers S2E spell to express method, Somas RPM method, in Israel we have Yael Cohens TTE type to express method… The bottom line is that the world MUST understand and accept that this is the official (and only known) method of communication for preverbal/minimal verbal/non talking autistic community, In exactly the same way that braille is the method of communication for the blind community and sign language is the method of communication for the deaf community.

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.”
