Developing the Best Education for Your Child
If your child is blind, visually impaired or deafblind, academics are not enough to prepare him or her for an independent, engaged, happy future.
The Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) is a disability-specific set of skills that compensates for vision loss and is foundational to all other learning. It focuses on independence, assistive technology, vocational training, social engagement and more to prepare your child for his or her fullest life possible.
To develop the best education for your child, it is critical for families to understand the components of the ECC and to partner with their school districts to design an Individualized Education Program (IEP) that adequately addresses these supplemental needs.
