Anna Napolitano is from Pennsylvania. She is a nonspeaking intelligent person who learned to spell to communicate five years ago. She is excited to serve on the I-ASC Nonspeaking Leadership Council to further the mission of increasing access to communication for all fellow nonspeakers. Through sharing her life-saving experience of finding her voice, she has helped open the door to communication fo others previously trapped in their silent prisons. Her work has just begun to make the world a better place for those who have so much to say but don’t have a way to express themselves.
