About the presenter:
Rebecca Davis recently joined the Federation as the new Transition Project Manager. Rebecca and her family relocated to Massachusetts a few years ago in search of better medical and educational resources for her youngest daughter, Eliza, who turned 15 in June. A former teacher, Rebecca has been an advocate for Eliza and other families of children with multiple disabilities and Cortical Visual Impairment for many years.  She has presented at national and regional conferences for families, educators, and medical professionals about educational resources for children with multiple disabilities and support for their families. She obtained advocacy training through the Partners in Policymaking Program in Indianapolis, Indiana and co-founded Visually Impaired Preschool Services (VIPS) Indiana. Since moving to Massachusetts, Rebecca has worked with transition aged youth at Perkins School for the Blind. As both a parent and a professional, Rebecca fully embraces the Federation’s mission of helping youth with disabilities and their families navigate the transition to full and meaningful adult lives.
