Bringing the Expanded Core Curriculum Into Your Holidays with Your Blind or Visually Impaired Child

By Emily Coleman

The Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) is specific to children with visual impairments, and further explanation can be found at the American Foundation for the Blind website: The Expanded Core Curriculum for Blind and Visually Impaired Children and Youths. The ECC covers 9 areas of instruction needed for a child with a visual impairment so they can access the world just like their peers without a vision loss.

In honor of this holiday season, I'm going to bring you the "9 Days of Holiday" with the Expanded Core Curriculum, instead of the "12 Days of Christmas." It's a twist that would only make sense to educators in the field of visual impairments (like myself) and parents of children who are visually impaired (also, like myself). So, enjoy, stay with me, and please share your own experiences!
