What Is The Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC)?

The term expanded core curriculum (ECC) is used to define concepts and skills that often require specialized instruction with students who are blind or visually impaired in order to compensate for decreased opportunities to learn incidentally by observing others.

Short-Term Programs

On campus weekend or week long classes are structured to include both school day and after school hours. A theme is followed so that programming during both time frames is complimentary. Students are under direct supervision throughout the entire stay on campus. Students may also be served online.

Transition To Adult Life

At TSBVI, we aim to partner with students, families, local school districts and other stakeholders to define a good adult life for each student. We provide instruction and experiences that relate to these goals and challenge students to expand their skills, self awareness and awareness of the world.
