Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC)

Students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) and students with visual impairments (VI) have unique needs that are specific to their needs. The Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) promotes the acquisition of compensatory skills that assist students who are deaf or hard of hearing and students who have visual impairments to access the core curriculum in a way that is equitable to students without disabilities. The ECC also promotes the acquisition of functional skills that assist students to access activities outside of the classroom, such as employment, recreation, social events and self‐care. Orientation and mobility are necessary aspects of the ECC and are relevant to both compensatory skills and functional skills. Students who are deaf or hard of hearing and students with visual impairments need to develop the skills needed to travel independently and learn from a variety of environments.
