Advanced hearing aids to help children with hearing loss

William Doyle (Bill) will be presenting on the Weingarten Children’s Center  and how there have been advancements in students with hearing disabilities. Weingarten Children Center is teaching children to listen, speak, and learn to ensure a successful life in the future.

Bill brings private sector career experience focused on building strong organizations by combining operating management, strategy, and capital. He has managed organizations, served on boards of directors of for-profit and non-profit entities, raised equity and debt capital as fund manager and investment banker, and provided strategic and operating advice as consultant. He holds a B.S.E. from Princeton University and an M.B.A. from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Bill works with Weingarten Children’s Center and its strategic partners to strengthen, finance, and deliver highly effective early intervention and truly significant impact for children who are deaf or hard of hearing, wherever they may live and whatever their circumstances.

Weingarten Children’s Center’s intensive education and therapy program teaches listening and spoken language to young children who are deaf or hard of hearing so they can close the gap with hearing peers and succeed in mainstream education starting in the first grade. A child who misses this window of neurological development will probably spend his or her school days in special education classes, falling progressively further behind, which is the outcome for up to 90% of children who are deaf or hard of hearing; that adds up to 900 children per grade in the state of California.
