The mission of Adler’s Voice is to help children experiencing significant expressive communication challenges obtain the resources, medical and therapeutic treatments, assistive technology, and training they need
to acquire expressive communication.

Our Story

Adler’s Voice was created by Stephanie Utzman in 2011 to help children experiencing a communication disorder access AAC technology. The program is named after her son Adler who experiences Cerebral Palsy, severe Apraxia, and IDD. Because his communication needs are so complex, advocating for access to high tech AAC has been an ongoing challenge. Through her frustration of battling the one-size-fits-all, hierarchical approach to granting access to AAC, she started this program to help other parents acquire the technology their child needs for communication.
