Introductions ~ Family Engagement members
Hi ~ My name is Paddi Davies and I'm coming to you from my home office in Monmouth, Oregon. I spent many, many years in the field of deaf-blindness as a technical assistance provider and now I am trying out retirement. I formally left the NCDB project nearly two years ago, but I'm still working part-time on the project's family engagement activities. I easily gave up going into the office each morning, but the desire to work with families of kids who are deaf-blind has stuck with me. :-) I'm lucky to be associated with so many wonderful families, family leaders and professionals who are passionate about working with families. In addition to my work with NCDB, I am a volunteer on the board of the National Family Association for DeafBlind (NFADB). We're so excited to be growing, strengthening and partnering with so many great families and organizations in the interest of empowering families!! If you're not familiar with NFADB, check it out at www.nfadb.org. I'm looking forward to our conversations!!
