Getting Lost in Stories

Reading has been my haven for some time now. I get lost in the stories. To me there are few things more enjoyable than a book that you do not want to end.

I cannot begin to tell you how my life has changed for the better now that books are in my life. I am now lucky to be a part of Book Club here at Inside Voice. To be able to have this opportunity is humbling. I have the chance to really dissect books.

Novels can be so much more enjoyable when you can discuss them. I have come to appreciate authors more for their technical skills as much as the story. Book Club will give me the chance to immerse myself further into the story and its nuances. I encourage everyone to dive into books beyond the plot. I promise you the experience will be richer because of it.

She was introduced to Spelling to Communicate two years ago and she says it completely changed her quality of life. S2C has allowed her to advocate on her own behalf. She feels having a voice has allowed her to build meaningful relationships and play an active role in her own life. Her dream of advocating for other individuals, is what keeps her moving toward her goals. She hopes to serve as a loud and proud member of the Philly S2C community.

The mission of I-ASC is to advance communication access for nonspeaking individuals globally through training, education, advocacy and research.  I-ASC supports all forms of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) with a focus on methods of spelling and typing. I-ASC currently offers Practitioner training in Spelling to Communicate (S2C) with the hope that other methods of AAC using spelling or typing will join our association
