Description of Practice Perspectives: The Guys Group: Navigating the Terrain of Adult Life Using Aspects of the Expanded Core Curriculum

As has been well documented, the skills outlined in the expanded core curriculum (ECC) provide students with visual impairments (that is, those who are blind or have low vision) with access to the core curriculum as well as skills for living and employment (Sapp & Hatlen, 2010). The ECC identifies nine areas of instruction: 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; and self-determination. Those of us in the field of visual impairment understand that general classroom teaching alone may not be able to adequately address these domains and that alternative instructional models need to be explored.
