If you have someone in your family who is 4 years or older who cannot use speech to fully communicate their thoughts, please join us. We are grateful for Common Purpose who has donated the use of their office space. We also appreciate Unlocking Voices for their support of nonspeakers in the UK, and Neurodiversity in Business for helping us get the word out. We are excited to be back in London for the mission!

This event is free, unticketed, and open to the public.

We would be happy to meet separately with anyone for whom this presents an accessibility barrier.
