NEW! (Ships beginning January 2015) - This parent-created DVD is a unique and important tool for service providers serving families with children who are blind, including children who are blind and hearing impaired (as the child in the DVD is both.) It is filled with in-home philosophies, strategies, creativity and resources, coupled with IEP strategies and resources, utilized by tenacious parents intent on ensuring their daughter with dual-sensory impairments would achieve literacy. It includes raw discussion of parents’ emotional journey - from grief and loss at first learning of her blindness and later of severe hearing impairments to a thirst for knowledge, action and advocacy. Follow along and learn what Dad and Mom did at home to learn, and then help teach, Braille and continuous learning to their daughter.
Length and format: 86 minutes of photo/video content includes VIDEO of child's mother presenting as she does at conferences.
