No Limits for deaf children
February 28, 2011

I spent 15 years as director of a charitable foundation named Hope for Hearing Foundation; which is no longer in existence.
Our purpose was to fund organizations which helped hearing impaired children to learn to speak and to listen and HEAR so they can live in this hearing world with less difficulty in communicating.

We funded a school called Oral Education Center - now Horizon School in Culver City CA for 25 years. When No Limits Theater Group, Inc was founded our Board of Directors were very happy with the work Michelle Christie Adams was doing with children. She was successfully working to reduce shyness and introversion in these hard of hearing children through the art of theater.

The children blossomed greatly and it was with great satisfaction for our Foundation to be able to help then with funds. Michelle was always forthcoming in providing information about the children, we were all invited to visit at any time and to the special events and productions that were produced.

Michelle is a very talented teacher, dedicated to helping these children, and she has made a big difference in the lives of all those who matriculated through her program. She is brilliant in surrounding herself and bringing to the program others who are successful teachers in this field.

I am happy to write this review and if you have any questions I would be happy to be contacted with questions.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have witnessed the growth and blossoming of these children for many years and it is very heartening to see a formerly shy boy now who is a pilot and successful young man, as an example. I have witnessed many children grow through the learning process.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give No Limits Theater group an opportunity to grow and spread the word about this unique and sensible method of teaching children to become more confident and capable of communicating in the modern world. Hope for Hearing Foundation is no longer in existence but if it were No Limits would definitely still be an organization we would fund in the future.
