COMMUNICATION COMES IN MANY FORMS.
For some it comes easily. That ability to make a friend, meet someone new, express yourself. For others it can be very challenging. Reasons range from shyness to disorders or even physical ailments.
OEF strives to make sure that every single person has the ability to communicate. That can be using their voice, or by using some of the amazing technology that exists. Effective communication is important because it allows people to lead more satisfying lives at school, work and elsewhere.
Join us to make sure that every child has the resources and tools they need to be able to communicate.
