Host Rachel

Bring Rachel to your event! The Signing Time Foundation can partners with your organization, school, agency, conference or Buddy Walks across the country to create community outreach experiences like no other.  The mission of our Signing Time Community Concerts and Events is: Include, Inspire & Empower

Rachel performing at a Signing Time Foundation Event

Our community concerts are some of the only fully-inclusive events available anywhere.  These concerts are created in a way that every child of every ability can participate fully and enjoy the experience.  Children with Autism, children with Down syndrome, typical children, children with speech delays or verbal apraxia, children with physical disabilities that require the use of walkers, crutches, braces, or wheelchairs, as well as children with extensive medical needs will find a place “where friends can meet and find we’re not so different after all.*”

When Rachel Coleman is invited to speak or give a keynote presentation, you can count on her words and her extraordinary story to “Include, Inspire and Empower” your event attendees.  Whether your event caters to medical professionals, educators, Early Hearing Detection and Intervention employees and participants, parents of children with special needs, and participants in and around Early Intervention Services- Rachel’s message is universally applicable and this message needs to be heard.
