Connecting Deafened People
in Boulder County & Beyond
ALDA informs people about the nature of acquired deafness & how we adapt.
Who Is ALDA? We are the Association of Late Deafened Adults (ALDA) — a nonprofit organization with
the general objectives of providing Education, Advocacy, Role models, and Support (or EARS) for people with acquired deafness. ALDA, Inc. has a strong record of significant accomplishments — both nationally & by local chapters — in empowering deafened people & improving accessibility.
We are not alone. But sometimes it feels that way. Almost 20% of Americans, or
48 million people, have hearing loss. We are the largest disability group in the U.S. Yet it can be hard to find each other & to get what we need to live well.
The Boulder Silent Outdoor Group offers various
deaf-friendly activities for people of all ages,
in great locations all around Boulder County.
Check out our OUTDOORS page to see schedules & event descriptions.
We welcome deafened, Deaf, & hard of hearing people; individuals, family, &
friends. We welcome sign language users, lip-readers, folks who do neither, or whatever. Hearing people are welcome too. ALDA's motto is "Whatever Works!"
For Summer of 2018, ALDA-Boulder introduces Small-Group Camping Trips at great Colorado campgrounds. Space is limited — save your spot now! (see below)
All outdoor adventures are designed for easy communication. We choose places that are family-friendly with a variety of things to do. We provide free healthy snacks!
Our goals are healthy outdoor activities & conversations with interesting people.
ALDA-Boulder offers a variety of social & recreational events for people with hearing loss.
