I started training to type to communicate my voice at the age of 17.5 years. My teacher, Melissa, taught me how to begin to neuro-regulate with mom as my communication partner. Typing has opened my life to free expression of who I am. I am able to share my life experience and my work in poetry and song lyric writing. I am continually learning to get my needs met and speak for myself after having no way to communicate for most of my life. With no way previously to speak, others made assumptions and choices for me. 4 years later, I am free to live my potential now that I can communicate. Loving-kindness support is needed for all in the non-speaking community.
