Highlighting Orange Effect Kids

As 2019 has come to a close we want to share with you just a few of the amazing kids that we have been able to help because of you.  


Age 5

His family’s insurance covers less than two speech therapy visits a month, but 2x/weekly sessions were recommended by his therapist. OEF helped close that gap. His family is over the moon with his progress with the additional therapy. 


Age 7

He is only able to use gestures to communicate. The PROMPT method of articulation training, the method that Eric is responding to the best, isn’t covered by insurance. He has made great improvements, and this consistent treatment ia “a major factor in continued success.” 


Age 5

She is currently receiving aid to attend twice weekly speech therapy sessions, filling in a gap where insurance falls off. Harper’s parents saw huge improvements once she was attending consistent speech therapy with a PROMPT specialist. 


Age 2 ½

Early intervention matters! John, an Orange Effect Foundation grant recipient, is at a critical age where he is too young for school-based therapy. And, his family’s insurance doesn’t cover speech therapy. We look forward to hearing about John’s improvements over the year!


Age 5

Holly, an Orange Effect Foundation grant recipient, will now receive year-round speech therapy, filling in a gap where insurance only covered therapy for six months. Consistent therapy has been shown to be a major factor in improvement and lifelong success. 


Age 18

It’s never too late to work on speech and communication. Dustin, an Orange Effect Foundation grant recipient, received a Speech Easy device to aid in speech – a device recommended by his speech therapist but not covered by insurance. We are thrilled to be able to play a role in Dustin’s success!
