Neil and Lori Rogers, parents of Craig a 32-year-old man withautism, are excited to offer a private screening of SPELLERS a new movieinspired by the book Underestimated by Jaime and JB Handley. The filmblends beautiful cinematography with heart-wrenching stories of eight autisticspellers and a strong message for every parent of a nonspeaker: your child cando this, too. SPELLERS demands that everyone should wake up to the reality that we may have underestimated the abilities of more than 50 million peopleworldwide.

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.”
