“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
The mission of I-ASC continues to be advancing communication access for nonspeaking individuals globally through training, education, advocacy, and research. Few events spread the message of advocacy and education as powerfully as SpellX does. SpellX is a global, salon-style event (similar to TED X) featuring short presentations by nonspeaking people who spell and type that debuted last year to rave reviews!
“The entire presentation was so beautifully put together, and so impactful. Each presenter was unique and memorable. I feel as though I am riding on a magic carpet today, after having witnessed SpellX.”
These presentations and performances not only showcased the talent of the spellerverse but displayed for the entire world that nonspeaking does not mean nonthinking! Our Spellerverse is made up of children and adults around the world who spell or type to communicate. We are delighted to see the Spellerverse is EXPANDING, with more trained practitioners supporting more nonspeaking, minimally speaking, and unreliably speaking people in communities worldwide!
Submissions have once again come in from all over the world to present at SpellX 2021. The line-up is going to be earth-shattering and is sure to be another must-see event! Mark your calendars now for SpellX 2021! The diversity and strength of the Spellerverse will surely steal the show again.
Registration for SpellX is now open and will take place on November 6th, in SIX virtual salons spanning SIX geographical regions/time zones making SpellX available to communities across the global Spellerverse!
Each salon will be hosted by nonspeaking and speaking emcees who will present recorded presentations (the presentations are the same in each salon) from our illustrious nonspeaking presenters while interacting with the audience. You don’t want to miss this epic event!
