“Happiness Falls” is a thrilling mystery that follows a nonspeaking protagonist and was chosen as the GMA Book Club’s September 2023 pick. Full of shocking twists and fascinating questions of love, language, and human connection, Queda da Felicidade is a mystery, a family drama, and a novel of profound philosophical inquiry. The story revolves around a Korean-American family that must work together to locate their missing father, Adam Parson, in Virginia before it’s too late, but only nonspeaking Eugene knows what really happened!
A team of nonspeaking authors from Growing Kids Therapy and I-ASC were featured on Good Morning America, presented by ABC anchor Juju Chang about Angie Kim, a New York Times Best Selling Author.

Based on the bestselling book by Naoki Higashida, THE REASON I JUMP is an immersive cinematic exploration of neurodiversity through the experiences of nonspeaking autistic people from around the world. The movie features intimate portraits of five remarkable young people, including I-ASC members Benjamin McGann and Emma Budway. It opens a window into an intense, overwhelming, and often joyful sensory universe. This rich tapestry leads us to Naoki’s core message: not being able to speak does not mean there is nothing to say.
This is a HUGE moment for NONSPEAKING PEOPLE everywhere! We particularly love film director Jerry Rothwell’s comment thanking the young people in the film for “reminding him of a different way of being human.” Additionally, long-time spellers Benjamin McGann and Emma Budway are influential representatives in this film for ALL nonspeaking, minimally, and unreliably speaking people who spell or type to communicate!
