Please help to send RealVoices of Philadelphia's teacher Meghan to get training in the Spelling to Communicate (S2C)! - a method of supported communication. ♥️ This training and certification costs $3000. We are halfway there. We need you.
What is supported communication? One of several methods that teach those with dysregulated body movement how to focus their hand and fingers, to be able to spell and type on a keyboard -- so that from being silent, and often considered mentally incompetent, their voice and intelligence can be heard.
What is RealVoices of Philadelphia?
* R.V.P currently offers Friday classes of rich academic material to a group participants. We hope to eventually offer more.
*We organize outings, and other social opportunities. *We help people find CRPs (communication and regulation partners).
* We help people get CRP training.
Why? Because the life of standard "adult day care" is one of of metal, emotional, educational, & cultural starvation. People with uncooperative bodies often have alive intellects and a longing for friendships.
In this way autistics and others with dysregulated movement reveal their Real Voices -- as poets & writers, thinkers and smartalecks! Spelling & typing to communicate has set their voices free.
We want to reach more and more of those locked in silence. But not every method works for every communicator - So we want training in as many methods as possible. Increasing autonomy of movement is always our goal.
♥️ Thank you for every dollar. ♥️
