Throughout the year, Saved By Typing provides information about autism and Supported Typing-related events in the local Central Indiana region and across the country.
Events include those we hold or sponsor, such as our monthly Celebrations of Communication, online Typer Hangouts, periodic training workshops for typers and their families, coaches, and trainers, and SBT fundraisers.

These include major autism and Supported Typing (aka Facilitated Communication) conferences and training workshops, Fun Runs, and Summer programs for the whole family.
