When Pam Taylor lost her voice, she was finally able to empathize with her best friend’s autistic son.
Connor Anderson, 9, of Kershaw has never spoken a word. His fine motor skills are not good enough to communicate with sign language.
He cannot hold a pencil to write. His caregivers are left to guessing his needs.
But family and friends are trying to change that. Ever since her vocal cords healed, Taylor has been raising money alongside Samantha Chilcoat, Connor’s mother, to buy a machine that will speak for him.
