Charting impact

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

One in nine children need some form of speech therapy. Early diagnosis and intervention services are essential in treating communication disorders. Intensive, individualized treatment can help lessen the isolation that may result from communication disabilities. Often families cannot afford these services, and insurance coverage is limited or non-existent. The Orange Effect Foundation funds speech therapy and speech devices to empower children and young adults with speech disorders to communicate effectively.

The Orange Effect Foundation funds speech therapy and speech devices for children and young adults who otherwise would go without.
