Every Child Can homepage

Every Child Can! The Expanded Core Curriculum for students who are blind or visually impaired is a new video from VIPS (Visually Impaired Preschool Services).

This video offers a preschool-level perspective on the Expanded Core Curriculum for Students Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired (ECC).  The ECC addresses nine critical skill areas these students must learn in order to find success in school and in life. However, they can be difficult to learn with limited or no vision.

The objective of the video is to demystify the ECC for parents of young children who are visually impaired and for their general education teachers who may  have limited expertise and experience teaching children with vision loss.  The video also encourages parents and professionals to advocate for use of the ECC, and to implement it at home, in the classroom, and in the community.  

This video is made with audio description for the visually impaired and closed captioning.  It is also available in Spanish, with audio description and closed captioning in Spanish.  A transcript is available by request for an additional fee.

The DVD or USB is available for purchase from the VIPS online store for $50.00.
