Heart to Heart
Breaking the News
Brothers and Sisters . . . Growing Up with a Blind Sibling
Being Blind . . . Inspirational Stories
The INSTITUTE FOR FAMILIES has created a series of professionally produced videotapes that deal with issues affecting the families of the visually impaired and the health care workers who assist them. These tapes are distributed to a diverse group of people, including parents of visually handicapped children, educators, hospitals, and medical centers, individual physicians, nurses, physical therapists, rehabilitation specialists, etc. Our video Breaking the News (listed below) is now being used in thirty-eight medical schools and is impacting the training of the new generation of physicians. Please contact us by telephone or by mail if you wish to order any of these items (A $10 donation per video is suggested to cover our costs of duplication and postage.). You may also e-mail us: .
