Judge Wales was born with Moebius Syndrome, a rare genetic condition, that left his face half-frozen with paralysis. It also impacted his eye movement, hearing, and disrupts the use of one’s tongue and palate when attempting to talk. Until age 12, Judge Wales could barely speak a short sentence without great difficulty. Rosalie Gellman is a ventriloquist who studied under TV star Edgar Bergen, known for his iconic puppet Charlie McCarthy. Gellman was approached by a public speech pathologist working with Judge Wales, and ventriloquism helped him unlock speech skills and find his voice. By age 13, Judge Wales was able to speak with confidence in front of his entire synagogue for his bar mitzvah, an important Jewish rite of passage. Program includes an area bullying expert. Judge Wales will be available for interviews.
