Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Education Resources for Professionals

Students who are blind or visually impaired have a variety of needs, and AFB understands that educators require access to just as many resources to serve them. We organized all of this material around the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC), which includes the following areas:

  • compensatory or functional academic skills, including communication modes
  • orientation and mobility
  • social interaction skills
  • independent living skills
  • recreation and leisure skills
  • career education
  • use of assistive technology
  • sensory efficiency skills
  • self-determination

You will also find information and links for education administrators, para-educators, and other members of the multi-discipline team. General and special education teachers, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech and language pathologists, assistive technology specialists, and, of course, parents will all find useful resources here.

The AFB Bookstore also offers a wide range of resources on the topic of Education, including Braille and Literacy, Orientation and Mobility, Social Skills, Assistive Technology, and more.
