Curriculum is an important element of education. For students with vision impairments, experiences and concepts casually and incidentally learned by sighted students may need to be systematically and sequentially taught to students with vision impairments. Indeed students with vision impairments may need instruction in a variety of specific skills - identified as the expanded core curriculum. The curriculum should be balanced with due consideration given to the children's intellectual, personal, emotional and social developments. To teach visually impaired children, the teacher should adopt a consistent, realistic and flexible approach in curriculum planning and implementation. The expanded core curriculum (ECC) makes a dramatic difference on how prepared students are for their next environment.
