Practice Report — JVIB Extract

Since Practice Reports do not have abstracts, we have provided an extract of the beginning of the text.

Extract: How do professionals address accountability mandates that are derived from the No Child Left Behind Act and the overall educational needs of students who are visually impaired during the school day? Meeting state and federal mandates while maintaining the individuality of educational programs is challenging for all educators. Teachers of students who are visually impaired and certified orientation and mobility (O&M) specialists may be affected even more as they search for an approach that allows them to address the subject areas of both the general education curriculum and the expanded core curriculum (ECC) in both the classroom and students' Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). Professionals in the field of visual impairment know that the ECC is a critical component of students' education and development (Hatlen, 1996, 2003). We also know that it is important both to teach the skills required in each of these areas in isolation and to generalize them within other ECC areas and ultimately within the community.
