The history of Autism is 8 decades old; spelling to communicate is less than a decade old. The body of research that supports both is in its infancy. I-ASC hopes to change that by:
  • Keeping rigorous records and gathering benchmark data to better understand nonspeaking communication
  • Developing metrics to document speller progress
  • Using a systematic approach to document and measure innovative practice
  • Engaging with researchers who want to understand the sensory-motor systems of nonspeaking children and adults
  • Encouraging collaborative interdisciplinary research and data collection in partnership with nonspeaking people – the true subject matter experts.

Eye-tracking reveals agency in assisted autistic communication

THIS is the study that changes everything! This eye-tracking study reveals cognitive processes in nonspeaking individuals who spell to communicate!
