Independence is a key skill that empowers us to navigate the streets of life, and to take advantage of the opportunities the world has to offer. In order to do this safely, however, it is critical that we are aware of our surroundings, understand the potential hazards of a given situation, and have the skills to respond effectively when things go wrong.

Whether using social media, surfing the internet, making a purchase at a store, or traveling in a public place, there is always the risk that we could fall victim to the ill-intentions of others. 

The Self-Defense program will help visually impaired students learn the mental and physical skills needed to identify warning signs, and to respond decisively to defend themselves.  

This program targets several ECC skills with particular focus on the following:

  • Independent Living Skills
  • Use of Assistive Technology
  • Social Interaction Skills
  • Self-determination

Cost: $450
