Building Blocks for Success Using the Expanded Core Curriculum
In this OCALICON session, presenters discussed how people who are blind or visually impaired navigate their home and work lives using the explicitly taught skills associated with the Expanded Core Curriculum for Students who are Blind or Visually Impaired (ECC-BVI) as part of the ECC Perspectives Panel. These foundational skills are critical in all aspects of life and are the building blocks for independence at home, school, and in the community. Our panel of adults shared their personal experiences to help families and professionals learn ways to support students in becoming active, contributing members of society who are successful.
