The Vision Loss Resource Team of The Pennsylvania Council of the Blind (PCB) is hosting a call-in telenar open to persons with vision loss, their families, friends and the general public.
You are cordially invited to participate! The topic for this call will focus on FAMILY DYNAMICS. What we mean by that is: not only does the individual experiencing vision loss find it necessary to go through a period of adjustment, but often times, so does the family. In brief, the influence the family has on the adjustment process can be supportive or destructive. This call will be guided by psychologist Dr. Andre Watson, who is blind and has a private practice specializing in family relations and treating children and adolescents to cope with life’s hardships and misfortunes. Dr. Andre is also a motivational speaker, author, and leader in the blindness community. We believe this call will generate some lively and thought provoking discussion; as well as the sharing of practical strategies for coping with vision loss.
HOW TO JOIN: Callers with unlimited long-distance: call, 605-475-4715. When prompted, enter the passcode 815419 followed by the # key. Callers needing toll-free service: Contact the PCB Office at 877-617-7407 before May 8 for instructions

Mark Your Calendars for PCB Perspectives, a telenar designed to provide information on a variety of topics to enhance our independence and become a better resource for others experiencing vision loss. Stephen Kuusisto, author of Planet of the Blind will advise us on the art of crafting and telling our story for maximum effect. We will learn of a unique approach to community outreach from Carla Ruschival, member of the Greater Louisville Council of the Blind and ACB Treasurer.
