SSIS is 2013-2014 “NSSLHA Loves” Recipient – Update

February 16, 2014 –  The NSSLHA (National Student Speech Language Hearing Association) has been actively fundraising this school year for their 2013-2014 “NSSLHA Loves” campaign recipient: Small Steps in Speech (SSIS).   Each year local NSSLHA chapters host fundraising activities to raise money for organizations that assist individuals with communication needs.   This school year the campaign will contribute all funds raised to SSIS, a 501(c)3 organization that provides funding to children with speech and language disorders and organizations that serve children with these needs.  Already $3,000 has been raised by 8 chapters and many more fundraisers are in the works.

“We at Small Steps in Speech are grateful to the members of NSSLHA for sharing our mission to both the speech and language pathologists-in-training and those who have been treating communication disorders for years.  Not only will we be able to provide increased funding for therapies to children with speech and language needs, but this collaboration also strengthens the reach of both organizations.   When looking at past “NSSLHA Loves” recipients, I am honored that SSIS was chosen to be in the company of so many outstanding organizations.  Small Steps in Speech was founded in honor of my fallen hero, U.S. Army Medic and Green Beret SSG Marc J Small.   Marc supported the growth and improvement of all children and it is fitting that these funds will allow children the opportunity to find their voice through therapy.  Just as Marc was a hero to our country, I believe that our organizations are doing heroic work in helping so many children improve their communication, which strengthens individuals, families, schools and communities.,” says Amanda Charney, Founder/Executive Director of SSIS.
