Theresa (Teri) Doyle was a partner in a court reporting firm for 29 years. After retiring from court reporting, she was in the financial planning industry for 7 years, before joining Aldridge Financial Consultants.
She volunteers with Kids Love to Learn, and is passionate about their pre-school literacy program Chatter Buddies. Chatter Buddies seeks to close the literacy gap our nation’s children are facing today. Developed by a certified Speech-Language-Pathologist, Chatter Buddies is designed for the entire preschool audience but with a narrow teaching focus vital to the development of the fundamental building blocks on which literacy is based. A screening of a mere three-minute running story board of Chatter Buddies unlocked the oral communication of a non-verbal four-year-old with Down’s Syndrome, and elicited a first-time ‘r’ sound from a Head Start child. It is anticipated that Chatter Buddies will positively impact children from all populations and, in effect, “inoculate” millions of children against literacy stumbling blocks.
