Full Text: The Perkins School for the Blind Training and Educational Resources Program recently made a new webcast available on its web site: . "The Impact of Deafblindness on the Family," is presented by Marlin Minkin, a psychologist with national and international experience working with families of children who are deaf-blind. The webcast addresses issues that families struggle with related to raising children who are deaf-blind, including common responses to a diagnosis of deaf-blindness, the value of parent-to-parent support, and issues that can arise with siblings of children with deaf-blindness.
