I-ASC hosts and educates through monthly and yearly events designed to inform and enlighten all members of our community. Our events provide opportunities for the neurodivergent community to share their opinions, show off their talents, hear from the experts, and learn about the latest research and educational resources. We invite you to attend, see and experience these groundbreaking events and celebrate our nonspeaking community as they share their creativity and talent.
Neurolyrical Cafe is a monthly event partnering with Unrestricted Interest, a writing program and consultancy dedicated to helping neurodivergent learners transform their lives through writing. The Cafe allows nonspeaking writers to share their authentic selves without competition or bias and broadcast on a clear frequency their latest work and a collaborative “Spellerverse” group piece. The best part is that it is free to attend for anyone interested in joining us!
Boards & Chords is a virtual music festival celebrating and showcasing nonspeaking songwriters from all over the world. We showcase the work of spellers and typers who create music. This is a free concert full of music, encouragement, and community. There are two showtimes spanning multiple geographical regions and time zones, making Boards & Chords available to the Spellerverse worldwide! All nonspeakers are welcome to submit a proposal for a song.
SpellX is a free online, salon-style event to share short passionate talks, poetry, presentations, and talents from nonspeaking, minimally speaking, and unreliably speaking individuals who spell and type to communicate. This event aims to increase access to communication for all nonspeaking people by demonstrating all that is possible with a reliable means of robust communication! These presentations will give you a glimpse into the lives of some of our nonspeaking, minimally speaking, and unreliably speaking Spellers. SpellX is presented in six geographical regions/time zones, making SpellX available to Spellerverse members worldwide.
Motormorphosis is our yearly conference on all things S2C. We start Friday with a one-day S2C Practitioner Conference. Friday night, we kick off the general conference with a huge party for our Spellers. We have a variety of presentations and panels given by both nonspeakers and speakers that are sure to pique your interest.
In years past, we’ve had political panels where Spellers discuss disability rights with politicians, presentations on new research regarding autism and S2C, songwriting sessions with Unrestricted Interest, and so much more. At the end of the day, Motormorphosis is a time to connect with the Spellerverse live and in person. This Annual Motormorphosis Conference is held in Herndon, Virginia, every July. We can’t wait to see you there!
Spring Into Spelling is a virtual benefit that supports nonspeakers worldwide. It is a fun-filled evening celebrating the nonspeaking community that includes an exciting live auction, awards, raffle, entertainment, and uplifting stories of success from the nonspeaking community. Although Spring Into Spelling is a live event, we encourage you to join the fun early by bidding on the marvelous items that we have available in the silent auction.
