Typed Words, Loud Voices
Forward by Melanie Yergeau
This is a collection of works that includes poems and essays on a variety of topics, all written by individuals who type to communicate. Both Amy and Elizabeth are contributing authors. A portion of the book addresses the controversy of facilitated communication.
Typed Words, Loud Voices is written by a coalition of writers who type to talk and believe it is neither logical nor fair that some people should be expected to prove themselves every time they have something to say. Read our arguments and hear us. Help us change the world.
Getting your attention that I want to "voice" something is my first challenge. ... however, if you calm your leap to judge, you may find that since we know we take more effort to "listen" to, we make sure you "hear" something memorable... - Devva Kasnitz, PhD. CUNY - Disability Studies
This groundbreaking book is a must read for anyone who truly cares about equality, and it gives you a new perspective about what it means to have a 'voice.' - Matthew Wangeman, MCP. NAU - Disability Studies
Ibby, Amy and the other authors here speak from the heart because they live it all day every day. I've learned from them in ways that can't be measured over the past couple of years - their words and thinking have literally changed my life. They'll change yours, too. Read this, now. - Phil Smith, Professor, Eastern Michigan University
