New Voices works to improve educational opportunities for children with severe communication and mobility disabilities.
Each year, New Voices Foundation recognizes outstanding individuals who directly serve or advocate for children with both physical and communication challenges. The individuals honored will have improved the lives of children who use alternate ways of communicating and serve as an inspiration to others who work with such children.
Winners will be recognized at a special public reception on April 16, 2015 and will receive a $500 cash prize, a special trophy and a certificate of commendation.
Let someone know how much his/her efforts are recognized and appreciated. Help inspire others to make a difference in the lives of children with communication and physical challenges.

New Voices’ mission includes informing others about the underestimated capabilities of New Voices’ children. We can’t think of a better way to do so than to showcase different perspectives by sharing a couple of blogs with you, our site visitors.
David Bradley is a 21 year old young man who shares with his readers everything from how he uses his eyes to write his blog to how his mom used the sand on the beach to support him so he could sit up. He invites questions about his extraordinary life. http://dbradley93.wordpress.com/
Ruth Morgan is one of our 2014 Lara Jane Parker award winners whose blog includes everything from Chapel Hill happenings to sharing lesson plans using assistive technology. Her award-winning blog is a great resource for professionals working with New Voices’ children and demonstrates her commitment to educating all children. http://chapelhillsnippets.blogspot.com/
