Bjorn This Way Inc.
A Public Charity
Mission and Vision
Voice, speech, and swallowing disorders impact the lives of millions of people. The mission of our public charity Bjorn This Way Inc. is to fund speech pathology services for people in need to empower them to communicate, socialize, and work. Our vision is for all people to participate in life as fully as possible.
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.
