Featuring the Deaf-Blind Explorers Cruise to Alaska with Support Service Providers

Written and Narrated by Diane Lane Chambers

DVD for Deaf -Blind
Diane Chambers has  announce a newly released DVD on Support Service Providers for Deaf-Blind Individuals.  An estimated to be 1.2 million Americans are both deaf and visually impaired.  Dealing with this dual sensory loss can be challenging at the very least and devastating at its worst, causing profound isolation and loneliness.  Support Service Providers can make a huge difference in improving the quality of lives for people who are Deaf-Blind.

The DVD is informative and engaging documentary which portrays SSPs at work with Deaf-Blind individuals on a cruise to Alaska.  Personal testimonials by Donna Ragland of Morrison, Colorado, and other Deaf-Blind travelers from all over the United States, describe the value of support service providers:  how their services enable them to access the world around them, participate in their communities, and maintain and enjoy an active life.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this DVD will benefit future trips of the Deaf-Blind Explorers. For more information on the DVD and other books:
