17, 2008, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
honored me with the Distingished Alumnus Award
for my 40 years of service as a speech
pathologist. I was an early pioneer in the field

Aids. I first worked in the public schools and
in private practice.

"there aren't enough sick people to warrant
publishing it." As a result, 30 years ago, I
founded Crestwood Communicaton Aids, Inc. with
the Talking Pictures Kit I, Survival Living

created hundreds of speech devices.
deepest thanks to all of you for your suport in
helping us grow. We are happy that we have been
able to help over a million individuals with
communication difficulties develop their
communication skills and lead more independent
