Message Boards is a grassroots forum and a gateway to more information about the Expanded Core Curriculum, a curriculum that provides students who are blind or visually impaired with the foundational skills they need to access the core curriculum and achieve independence throughout their lives. We advocate for inclusion of the ECC as an integral part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)'s reauthorization.

Whether you are a parent, teacher, administrator, or just someone concerned with providing effective education to all children, we invite you to join our community.
