MIND OVER MATTER: Coping with Disability
Roberta Fanicelli interviews Winnie Tunnison about what it is like to be deaf adult who then loses her sight. Patricia Capone acts as interpreter for Winnie who signs her responses to Fanicelli's questions. Winnie discusses her emotional and intellectual responses to the realization that she was indeed going blind, including her hospitalization and treatment for depression. Ilene Miner represents the Helen Keller National Center and talks about what the program offers adults who are deaf-blind and the emotional impact often felt by those adults who find they are losing both sight and hearing.
