This year’s DisAbility Summit will include presentations on research and practice in the areas of transition to work and inclusive schooling. We are excited to announce our keynote speaker, Joe Xavier, California’s Director Department of Rehabilitation, has more than 34 years of experience in business and public administration, as well as many years participating in advocacy and community organizations. As an immigrant, a blind consumer, a beneficiary of the DOR’s services, Joe has the experience and understands the challenges and opportunities available to individuals with disabilities, and the services required to maximize an individual’s full potential.
