Silent Voice is a not-for-profit charitable organization founded in 1975. We are the only organization in the GTA offering community and family-based support to Deaf children and adults in American Sign Language (ASL). We provide social-recreational programs in ASL for Deaf children and their hearing brothers and sisters and we teach hearing family members the language of ASL. Also, in partnership with other organizations, we offer special assistance and outreach services to disadvantaged Deaf adults living in the community.
