What we do

Thank you for your interest in the Adler’s Voice Grant Program. Adler’s Voice will provide assistance to children and young adults up to age 21 residing in Oregon who experience a complex communication disorder so that they may access the tools they need to communicate to the best of their abilities. It is our belief that the ability to communicate in any way opens doors for all individuals.

Joshua was born with a genetic dis­order, deaf­ness, and a sei­zure dis­order. By age 11, his com­mu­ni­ca­tion abili­ties were still those of a two-year-old. We creat­ed a per­sona­liz­ed com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tem that pro­vides him with an ef­fec­tive way to ex­press thoughts, to make choices, and to ex­pand on his emerg­ing sign lan­guage.
