The Independent Little Bee: A little something for children with vision impairments & their families

busy board idea

Shared by Robbin Keating

Hi! I’m Robbin Keating and I am a vision impairment education professional. I am also the daughter of a single mom with total vision loss. I love to advocate the importance of the Expanded Core Curriculum for children with vision impairments. The focus of my blog is the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) and how to implement it into everyday life. There are posts with topics on all aspects of the ECC and for a range of vision impairments, ages and abilities. My students, co-workers, parents and even my own family post ideas, resources and personal stories of living in the vision impairment community. I love working in this field!
