ECCadvocacy.org is a joint website of the American Foundation for the Blind and Perkins School for the Blind, dedicated to ensuring that children who are blind, visually impaired, and deafblind have access to equal and appropriate education through the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC).
ECCadvocacy.org is a grassroots forum and a central resource and gateway to more information about the Expanded Core Curriculum, a curriculum that provides students with the foundational skills they need to access the core curriculum and achieve independence throughout their lives. The site advocates for inclusion of the ECC as an integral part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) scheduled for re-authorization in 2011.
Whether you are a parent, teacher, administrator, or just someone concerned with providing effective education to all children, you are invited to join the community. http://www.eccadvocacy.org/eccforum.asp
