I have a quick question.  Is the Cleveland Sight saving center the same as
the Cleveland Society for the Blind if so no wonder.

I find it highly ironic that the couple described below gives presentations
on the "capabilities" of people with disabilities when they consented to
have Extreme Home Makeover modify their house, given that their only
disability is blindness.

Makes one ill and proves once again why we need NFB!

Subject: [Wcb-l] Another Extreme Makeover

The next episode of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will feature the
family of Andre and Jasmine Anderson on Sunday, December 5th. The family was
selected as the recipient of a brand new home after sharing their personal
story with the show's producers. Andre and Jasmine Anderson are both clients
of Cleveland Sight Center and advocates for people with disabilities. Andre
is currently doing his graduate-level internship in social work at Cleveland
Sight Center, and Jasmine leads a low vision support group and does
presentations to school-age children regarding persons with disabilities,
communicating their many capabilities and helping to dispel misperceptions.

Host Ty Pennington, the design team, and Marous Brothers Construction
created an extraordinary home for Andre, Jasmine, sons Jaison and Jahzion,
and Andre's guide dog, Valentine. Cleveland Sight Center was pleased to be a
resource regarding adaptations and assistive technology for the project.
