Keynote Presentation

The Family Advantage for Success at Work presented by Ron Brooks

VRATE is all about how to help blind and visually impaired people gain and maintain independence through high-quality rehabilitation services and by using technology. But most days begin and end at home, so having a positive relationship with the family is at least as important as the most sophisticated piece of assistive technology available. Ron Brooks is blind, a graduate of Indiana University and committed to transforming mobility for people with disabilities.
