Podcast With A Blindness Perspective.

Oct 31, 2019

Dr. Linda Gerra, Director of the Parent Support Program at Lighthouse Guild, and Parents, Maria Ceferatti and Himanshu Neema share their experiences participating in the Parent Tele-Support Network. The Lighthouse Guild has Tele-Support Networks for Teens and Parents of Blind and Visually Impaired children. 

Support is a phone call away

Wherever you live, there’s a community of caring parents who understand how you feel, because they’re going through the same thing. Through our National Tele-Support Network for Parents of Children with Visual Impairment, you can connect with other parents to share resources, experiences, strength, and hope. These free tele-support groups meet weekly, and are professionally moderated. Whether you choose to actively participate or just listen, you are welcome and not alone.
