ALDAcon is the annual convention of the Association of Late-Deafened Adults (ALDA). ALDAcon usually begins with a Welcome Reception on Wednesday evening and ends with a Farewell Brunch on Sunday morning. In between that time, members are invited to attend various presentations and workshops, the exhibits hall, the ALDA business meeting, the I King Jordan Awards Banquet and the famous Karaoke Party, where everyone lets their hair down and pretends they have a "golden voice."
ALDAcon provides an opportunity to learn about issues late-deafened individuals face, and the strategies that they have developed to overcome everyday challenges. ALDAcon is a place to make new friends, renew old friendships, to learn and share, and to simply have fun!
ALDAcon provides a stress-free environment where all workshops, luncheons, and special events are made accessible by the simultaneous presence of sign language interpreters and CART writers. Assistive listening devices (ALDs) are available upon request. ALDA welcomes everyone of all hearing levels and ALDAcon's spirit of inclusiveness is demonstrated every year.
