Unlocking Voices – Using RPM is a not-for-profit community interest company based in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham. It was set up by four ladies who recognised how the Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) could help autistic people and their families. They maintain a close relationship with Soma Mukhopadhyay who developed RPM. They strongly believe that all autistic people are capable of learning age appropriately if taught in the right way and have helped hundreds of parents realise the potential that their children have.
SILENT I MAY BE,
BUT STUPID I AM NOT,
PLEASE SEE AUTISTIC PEOPLE FOR WHO THEY ARE,
AND FOR NOT WHAT THEY SEEM.
