Watch our easy-to-understand introduction to OA/TOF

23rd March 2019

Please do tell your local hospital about TOFS - and in particular - that this short video is now available for parents who have only just been introduced to the world of OA/TOF.

This short animation is a comforting and easily followed introduction to OA/TOF. The terms are clearly explained in a down-to-earth way and there is an overview of what this might mean for your child. It's creator, Vicki Martin, is an Adult TOF (and co-editor of The TOF Book, available here) and the narration is by Judy Riley, mother of an Adult TOF.

Every TOF child is different, but we hope this video brings reassurance and understanding to your child's OA/TOF diagnosis.

Please see our other resources here. We'd love to have your comments about this video - or ideas for others. Just email
