In response to Covid-19 Bridging Voice is providing all our services virtually. Our team has been providing full remote support to ALS clients across the country. Now more than ever we know how critical it is to ensure our clients are able to stay connected with their loved ones. We are here for you.
Mission & Vision
WE BELIEVE the ability to connect and communicate with family, friends, and the broader world is a critical component of the human experience. No diagnosis should be allowed to rob an individual of this possibility.
OUR MISSION is to enable and empower people with neurodegenerative disorders to communicate by removing the barriers between them and assistive technology.
In the United States there are over a million people struggling from the impact of neurodegenerative diseases, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), multiple system atrophy (MSA), muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and others.
These diseases can leave a person’s cognition intact while destroying their ability to move and communicate. Without assistive technology these individuals are left unable to express even their most basic needs.
Assistive technologies can help. These technologies can be very effective in restoring a person’s ability to communicate, but there are gaps that prevent these services from being successfully deployed:
Bridging Voice assists people with neurodegenerative diseases with their computer access and communication technology needs at every juncture. We educate clients, their families and health practitioners on available communication options, streamline the process of accessing special technologies, and provide ongoing support, training, and customization to maximize every client’s quality of life. Through a range of personalized services, we help lift the technology burden off their shoulders.

They also gave me fun ideas on how to use the computer to play and interact with my four and five year old children.
