Buffalo, New York NBC-TV-affiliate story about nonspeaking autistic 7th grader Reagan Fast, who is on the high honor roll at her local public school and whose dream is to study botany at UC Berkeley. Reagan communicates by typing on an iPad and by pointing to letters on a letterboard, which she learned to do through Rapid Prompting Method. She makes and sells knitted hats to help fund other autistic students’ learning of RPM.
