Author Heather Wittaker, from A Different Little Doggy, was kind enough to write this blog about Allison "We all know teachers make a difference to children, so for July, we thought we'd highlight one special teacher making a difference in multiple ways. Meet Allison Schley.

"I really like the story. As a person with partial hearing loss, I could identify with the boy sleeping soundly through the noise. The story came to life with the great illustrations and it was nice to see the positive connection between the hearing impaired boy and dog. Thumbs up!"
Jean Boston, Account Executive: "I have known Allison for several years!! It all started with our kids going to school together. Allison is a woman with a BIG heart and passion for the deaf. She has worked as a teacher of the deaf for years in public schools, but being the women she is she saw needs for education, training and help for those with younger deaf children. Because of her desire to make a difference and help provide education, training and services she made it her goal to start an Organization to help deaf families. She is an amazing woman, with and unstoppable passion to help the deaf, she inspires others to come alongside and help with her enthusiasm, joy and energy she radiates around her. If your looking to be a part of an Organization or to fund financially than Communication Connections is an amazing organization, run by an incredible President Allison Schley."
