“As a teacher of the deaf, back in 1989, I never dreamt that I would see the changes in opportunities for deaf children brought about by cochlear implantation. It’s a privilege to have observed the dramatic changes in opportunities offered by today’s hearing technologies, particularly cochlear implants, for deaf children and adults”.
The Ear Foundation has led the way in the provision of cochlear implants for children since it’s founding in 1989, and continues to do so in 2017. As the past CEO of The Ear Foundation, I lead a great team in ensuring that the potential of the technology is reached in everyday life. My previous work in education, managing Nottingham Cochlear Implant Programme for 15 years, delivering clinical services and participation in qualitative research gave me the background to run such an exciting and diverse Third Sector organisation. Having now left this role I am delighted to have the opportunity to share my experiences by giving these talks for RIDBC.
