The documentary SPELLERS is now available on YouTube.

SPELLERS the movie won Best Documentary and Donor’s Choice Award at its premier at the Phoenix Film Festival and this film is changing the way the world perceives non-speaking individuals with autism. The SPELLERS film is finally leading practitioners, educators, and even families to re-evaluate expectations and therapeutic approaches to this complex, multifaceted disorder.

The documentary SPELLERS pushes us to dig deeper, reflect on our own biases and develop new and appropriate therapeutic approaches that best serve non-speaking individuals with autism and apraxia. It shows us that “assuming competence” leads to better outcomes and breakthroughs. Watch the trailer.

REACT is encouraging the public, including providers and educators, to watch the film SPELLERS to be inspired to make a difference in the lives of individuals who do not have access to these communication interventions.

REACT has an in-service opportunity:

REACT continues to work diligently to get this film in front of providers and educators. In 2023, REACT offered a 2.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ Continuing Medical Education course titled Multidisciplinary Perspectives of the Film SPELLERS: Considerations of Implicit Bias & Therapeutic Interventions For Non-Speaking Individuals with Autism. We encourage providers and educators to watch this discussion and for employers to host this film and course as an in-service opportunity for their staff.

REACT is also committed to providing scholarships to non-speaking individuals and their families to get SPELLERS ACC training. Since this training is not provided by school districts, insurance plans, or government assistance programs, many who desperately want this training are deprived of access due to financial limitations. Your donations are vital to helping this scholarship program to be successful.
