Connecting Deafened People
in Boulder County & Beyond
ALDA, Inc., the Association of Late Deafened Adults,
is a national nonprofit consumer advocacy & support organization.
The mission of ALDA is to support the empowerment of deafened people. Late-Deafened Adults are people who have lost
the ability to understand speech with or without hearing aids after they acquired spoken language.
We are committed to providing a support network and a sense of belonging by sharing our unique experiences, challenges and coping strategies, helping one another find practical solutions and emotional support, and working with other organizations and service providers for our common good.
ALDA, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

We are the first Colorado chapter of ALDA, founded in 2012. We serve
people in Boulder County with any level of hearing loss (mild to profound), their families, and friends. We offer recreational activities, social events, classes, workshops, training programs, mentoring, and peer support for people of any age who have lost their hearing.
Some of us use speech & speech-reading, have hearing aids or implants,
or use sign language or writing. Our motto is, "Whatever Works!" All modes
of communication are respected and welcomed. ALDA extends a warm
welcome to everyone, deafened or not, who supports our goals.
