This inspired Sandy to share this information because there are still so many people who don’t know about this method.

“One time, we asked Devon to complete the sentence Autism is… and Devon spelled “jabber loud in my mind”. Although I didn’t want Devon to have this experience, I was elated that I could understand what autism is like for Devon, but also for him to finally be able to express himself.”
