Many people are familiar with the wonderful website Teaching Students with Visual Impairments created by TVI Carmen Willings. She has been busy adding lots of digital downloads, which can be purchased through her online store. We have had the privelege of reviewing many of these materials, and they are sure to be much appreciated resources for teachers in the field! One great thing about digital downloads is that any time there is an update with new information or a correction, Carmen can send you the new file, so that you will have the most up-to-date information.
We recently published an article about Ms. Willing’s TVI’s Guide to Teaching the ECC and these resources are supplements to support teaching a range of activities related to the Expanded Core Curriculum.
