When your child transitions to school-based programming, they will learn the same academic subjects, like English and Math, as their peers. In order to master these subjects (known as the “core curriculum”) as well as to eventually live and work independently, your child will need to learn an additional set of skills known as the Expanded Core Curriculum. The nine areas of the ECC, including Orientation & Mobility, Sensory Efficiency, Independent Living, and Social Interaction, focus specifically on the unique learning needs of children who are visually impaired.
