2016–2017 NSSLHA Loves Recipient
CommunicAID+Nation (CA+N) was founded in 2012 to promote and provide speech-language resources for individuals with communication disorders. CA+N's mission reaches the continuum of communication disorders, regardless of etiology or cause, to make lives more enriched by the increased ability to communicate by any means. Since its humble beginnings in 2012, CA+N has helped numerous individuals and communities achieve access to resources that support interpersonal communication and improve quality of life. New to CommunicAID+Nation is Camden's Crew, a targeted initiative to promote developmental communication milestones to children who face prolonged hospitalizations, so that development does not have to fall secondary to acute medical diagnoses. This CA+N initiative was established in 2015, when CA+N's founder gave birth to a son who was subsequently hospitalized for ten consecutive months after birth for a rare and complex gastrointestinal disorder (short bowel syndrome), putting him at risk for significant developmental delays despite typical neurologic function. Today, CA+N is a dynamic organization supported by universities, hospitals, speech-language-pathologists, students, and the communities they serve to promote communication accessibility to all.
The deadline for donations is June 30, 2017. Be sure to select the purple NSSLHA donation icon on CA+N's donation page!
