We moved to Denver 45 years ago so our son, who is profoundly deaf, could enter the Auditory-Verbal therapy program. 41 years ago I helped statrt the Listen Foundation so that others could benefit from the therapy and also learn to listen and speak. He does not need an interpreter, he is very oral and is valued as an employee where he has become proficient at supervising crews that build ponds, waterfalls, patios, etc. He now has two cochlear implants that have made all the difference in the world in how he listens. We are grateful for the program started by Doreen Pollack and now carried on by the Listen Foundation that funds children whose families do not have the financial ability to provide this opportunity for their child. That is why I have been a volunteer or Board member for these many years.

We need more people to join us in marketing and promoting the fact that children who are deaf can learn to listen and talk with modern technology and specialized therapy.

Board Member & I help raise funds. I am an advocate for both children and adults who are experiencing hearing loss and encouraging them to see the specialists and improve their listening skills. .
