Notes from the nonprofit

This organization was established in 1984, and began operations in 1985, and continuously thereafter.
We have effectively addressed individual and group concerns that have not been addressed by any other organization or governmental entity, utilizing more effective programming, testing and of the persons and organizations we have served, with innovative techniques, and outstanding outcomes.
ALL of our participants who have been accepted for services have had their lives improved, their activities expanded, and many continue to assist many others in their own communities and groups to do the same.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1.) Totally equal access and participation for all persons with communication-related disabilities, (speech, vision, hearing, learning), and all other excluded and ignored persons, in all programs and services, with their own choice of necessary accommodations, at the local, county, regional, state, national and international levels.
2.) Ensuring that all persons, of all ages, and in all types of groups, of whatever type, are able to equally access and obtain all benefits, services, understandable information, and assistance.
3.) Professionally researching and assessing existing programs, services and initiatives, to ensure that no one is excluded or ignored.

Ensuring and verifying that all persons are treated and assessed as unique individuals, regardless of their disability, economic level, military service, or any other group affiliation in general society.

This organization is directed and guided by persons who are Professional Researchers and Scholars, with Ph.D. degrees from World-Class Universities, and others, including Advisors and Consultants, who have demonstrated exceptional education, experience and community achievements.

This organization's progress has been greatly successful.
However, the technology and electronic devices, and their costs, have increased significantly, and we need to replace long-outdated and no longer operable technologies.
