To celebrate our rich history, we would like to share 80 stories that have made Variety of Wisconsin the great organization it is today. Each story will spotlight people – including volunteers, donors and sponsors who have helped build our organization, and most importantly, stories about children that we have served. We will also spotlight significant milestones and achievements throughout our history.
Join us as we celebrate our 80th anniversary with our 80 Years 80 Stories campaign.
80 Years 80 Stories: Story #36-Liam’s Story
Liam is a 7-year-old boy who was born with a genetic duplication. He cannot speak, but uses a computer to talk! Three months ago, Liam started using a Tobii eye tracker — a communication device that uses his eye movements to help him speak. The device allows him to share his voice with the world and tell others his thoughts, feelings, opinions and more. We are looking forward to having Liam and his family join us this summer at Chatter Matters! Communication Camp. His family is excited to attend camp to learn how to incorporate the device more and meet other families who have children with physical and communication challenges.
