a roadmap to communication
I-ASC was formed to give nonspeakers, their families, and allies a place to find support, education, and community. The search for support and advice for nonspeakers can be confusing and frustrating. We understand.
Nonspeaking individuals with sensory-motor differences have long been underestimated and misunderstood. Informed by the lived experience of nonspeakers, we seek to educate nonspeakers, families, and the general population to better understand the underlying sensory and motor challenges affecting communication for nonspeaking, minimally, and unreliably speaking people.
