Phone Support Groups for Families of Blind Children and Teens
The Jewish Guild for the Blind’s National Tele-Support Network, the only one of its kind in the country, provides free, weekly telephone support groups facilitated by social workers and psychologists for families of blind, visually impaired or multi-disabled children and teens. The Guild is nonsectarian and one of the nation’s foremost not-for-profit vision health agencies.
Created by The Guild’s Children’s Vision Health Initiative, which seeks to eliminate preventable vision loss in children, the Tele-Support Network responds to a national need for support and facilitated interaction among these families. For many, The Guild’s Tele-Support Network is the only opportunity for them to interact with other families with a blind or visually impaired child and it meets a critical need especially if participants live in small towns or rural areas.
Families are encouraged to join The Guild’s Tele-Support Network. To register or for more information, please call 800-915-0306 or click this link to visit The Jewish Guild for the Blind’s National Tele-Support Network website: http://www.jgb.org/programs-parent-tele.asp.
