About Bjorn

Bjorn endured much in his 23 years, especially trying to be understood with speech that was not always clear. Yet Bjorn’s patience, courage, and determination allowed him to define his own style of communication for expressing himself. He was always thoughtful with a sense of humor and to the point. He lit up when discussing cars and sports. He became savvy with his text-to-speech app. With speech therapy, Bjorn’s confidence and independence blossomed through the journey of learning how to better advocate for himself and his communication.

Bjorn’s legacy will give opportunities to others who need support for their communication in all facets of life.
