In this enlightening episode, we journey into the realm of non-speaking autism, understanding the reasons behind why some individuals on the spectrum may not communicate verbally. We dismantle common misconceptions surrounding non-speaking autism and shed light on alternative communication methods like Spelling to Communicate (S2C). Discover how to better support and connect with those who experience life beyond words.
