LEA proudly attended and sponsored the 27th Annual VOICE Conference on May 3rd and 4th. Children with hearing loss, parents, teachers, researchers, clinicians, and hearing loss organizations all gathered at Centennial College in Ontario to celebrate the hidden treasures of living with hearing loss.

For a number of years now LEA has been fortunate enough to be involved with the VOICE conference, and we would like to congratulate them on another successful event this past weekend. This year featured tremendous guest speakers such as retired Canadian ice hockey player Jim Kyte and Associate Professor and Academic Coordinator in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education Program at York University, Pam Millett.

We wish VOICE all the best as they continue to advocate for and support families and children living with hearing loss.

VOICE is a registered charity that was established by a group of parents in the early 1960s, in support of their deaf and hard of hearing children. The charity has developed into one of the largest parent support organizations for families of children with hearing loss in Canada. VOICE has approximately 1,000 members, with chapters in Ontario and affiliates in Alberta, Manitoba, and Quebec.
