Short Course is a free, immersion program designed to create a partnership between ISBVI and local school corporations to provide a well-rounded curriculum base for students with visual impairments.
Students are invited to attend school on the ISBVI campus for up to nine weeks (i.e. one week per month). During the program, small group and one-on-one academic supports are provided to maintain the student's core curriculum and home school expectations. In addition, the students are given the opportunity to be inundated with the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) as the ECC remains the central focus of the program.
Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC):
compensatory or functional academic skills, including communication modes
orientation and mobility
social interaction skills
independent living skills
recreation and leisure skills
use of assistive technology
sensory efficiency skills

“It takes a lot of practice for our students to integrate these skills into their bodies and minds. Our students, just like any students, need safe chances to practice and fail and to then try again and be successful.”
