ALDA informs people about the nature of acquired deafness & how we adapt.
Deafened people guide others in understanding hearing loss & deafness issues.

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!"
Join us twice a month — on the 1st & 3rd Sunday afternoons — for our regular hikes & excursions, and join our mailing list for special event announcements.
We use wide, flat hiking trails for easy communication, & choose other
event locations that are family-friendly. We even provide free healthy snacks!
ALDA-Boulder is the first Association of Late Deafened Adults group in Colorado, chartered in 2012. We serve people of Boulder County — people with any degree of deafness, our families & friends, & anyone who interacts with deafened people.
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.
Our goals are healthy outdoor adventures & conversations with interesting people.
ALDA is about communication and acceptance of every deafened individual.
