Camp ALEC

Synopsis:

Nestled in the woods outside of Grand Rapids, Michigan, Camp ALEC is a sleepaway camp for kids who are non-speaking. Despite being smart, capable individuals in every sense, disabilities like autism, cerebral palsy, and verbal apraxia have made it impossible for these campers—along with 1.3% of the US population—to vocalize speech. To express themselves, they use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices that translate their composed messages into audible speech.
