Giving kids a voice at all times.

Imagine if you couldn’t speak… how would you communicate? How would you tell someone you’re hurt or what hurts? You’re thirsty or hungry? Or simply share your thoughts or feelings?

As one mother said, “The core of our being is communication.”

Many children have the chance to use a communication device in school, but many would only get it for brief periods of time and not be able to take it home. When school ended, children had to shut off their voice.

A communication device and the communication app prescribed on it are costly, and Variety wants to help families with it.

Finding a Voice

In November 2014, Variety unveiled its “My Voice” Program to provide children with a communication disorder their very own communication device to have a voice at all times.

Each communication device comes with a prescribed communication app, and a specialized case that is designed for children with disabilities that also includes a strap to carry with them wherever they go. The communication device is able to help children not only communicate on a daily basis, but it is a supplement to them in their education.
