Role Models

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.


ALDA-Boulder offers a variety of social & recreational events for people with hearing loss. 

  • Boulder Silent Outdoor Group
  • Coffee & Tea, Sign & Chat
  • Accessible Community Events 
  • Random social outings...
