We understand that there are considerable financial obstacles for families these days, and we don’t want finances to be a barrier to access to communication. We have been actively working on raising funds to help new spellers who need financial assistance to afford S2C sessions with a registered S2C Practitioner.  We have achieved some fundraising goals and are ready to launch our Speller Access Fund. 

Included in the New Speller Access Fund are a set of stencil letterboards, two workbooks, and vouchers for 5 sessions with a registered S2C Practitioner participating in the Speller Access Fund Program
