What is a Teacher of Students with Visual Impairments?
The Standard Core Curriculum (Language Arts, Reading, Writing, Math, Science, P.E, etc.) may need to be adapted to help students with visual impairments succeed in class. This may include changes in the classroom environment and changes in the curriculum- enlarged print, braille, etc.
- Adapt the Standard Academic Core Curriculum.
The ECC is the body of knowledge and skills that are needed by students with visual impairments due to their unique visual needs. Students with visual impairments need to learn the areas within the Epanded Core Curriculum (braille, technology, etc.) in addition to the core academic curriculum of general education. The nine areas of the ECC (see Expanded Core Curriculum Page) are used as a framework for assessing students, planning individual goals, and providing instruction.
- Teach the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC).
