ECC Icon Poster
The ECC Icon Poster is a wall-sized print/tactile poster that lists the Expanded Core Curriculum skills important for the specialized instruction of blind and visually impaired students. Each skill area is represented with a tactile/print icon and print/braille description. The nine skill areas include: Assistive Technology, Career Education, Compensatory Skills, Independent Living, Orientation and Mobility, Recreation and Leisure, Self-Determination, Sensory Efficiency, and Social Interaction.
The poster is complemented by a separate 2-page large print flyer (with a separate braille version) that provides a very detailed description of each ECC skill area. The content of this flyer was reprinted, with minor modifications, with permission from the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. The visual/tactile icons are a carryover from the Quick & Easy ECC: The Hatlen Center Guide (available from APH).
The ECC Icon Poster measures 18 1/2 x 22 1/2 inches and has a die-cut hole for convenient hanging in a classroom setting. Prominently display this attractive and accessible poster to remind individuals (teachers, parents, paraprofessionals, etc.) working directly with students who are blind and visually impaired, as well as those unfamiliar with the ECC, of the importance of the Expanded Core Curriculum. The poster, with related flyer, is also an ideal addition to the use of the Quick & Easy ECC: The Hatlen Center Guide.
