Association of Late Deafened Adults (ALDA)
Information about the ALDA annual convention
ALDA was formed in Chicago, Illinois in 1987. Most of those that gathered there were total strangers who had never met or talked to another deafened person, yet they found themselves wonderfully comfortable with one another. There was an unspoken feeling of understanding and patience with each other’s communication difficulties. The marvelous sense of fellowship lasted and led to more social gatherings and self help support groups, which swiftly evolved into the Association of Late Deafened Adults (ALDA). Today, ALDA’s membership is international in scope. ALDA works collaboratively with other organizations around the world serving the needs of late deafened people and extends a welcome to everyone, late deafened or not, who supports our goals.
