Giving Oliver a voice
Oct 8, 2019
Oliver is six years old and has cerebral palsy. While his infectious energy and joy for learning know no bounds, his ability to communicate in the traditional sense with his parents, teachers and fellow students has always been limited.
“Receiving financial gifts from community partners like TELUS enhances our ability to enrich our programming resources, which directly benefits the children and youth we support each and every day.”
- Leslie Walker, Principal, OCTC
With the help of cutting-edge technology made available through TELUS Community Board funding and the support of the staff at the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre (OCTC), Oliver is now able to share his feelings, make those around him laugh and ensure his voice is heard.
