Training

Currently, the nonspeaking population is underserved. There are more potential spellers than trained practitioners. To teach communication to more nonspeakers and support their families, I-ASC is committed to training more rigorously prepared practitioners. Our goal is to train 1000 practitioners in Spelling to Communicate (S2C), a means of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) over the next three years with the hope of serving 20,000 nonspeaking, minimally speaking and unreliably speaking kids and adults. To meet our goal we are engaged in:
  • Global recruitment of talented people to train as S2C Practitioners
  • Increasing the number of S2C Practitioner training courses offered per year
  • Establishing best practice standards and guidelines for ethical practice
  • Providing continuous education and resources for S2C Practitioners and allied professionals
  • Adding to the growing number of spelling communities around the world
