Common Core / Curriculum

The Core Curriculum refers to the body of knowledge and skills that is taught to students in school. For children whose only disability is visual impairment, this is generally an academic curriculum, with adaptations. For students with additional disabilities, the curriculum will still be aligned with the general curriculum, but with more significant modifications.

Because the basic core curriculum does not include the special skills that students who are blind or visually impaired must be taught, the Expanded Core Curriculum is an essential part of a student's education.
