    Guiding Beliefs

    for learners who are blind/visually impaired, and deaf-blind, CSDB Believes: 

    • Concept development and experiential learning are foundational.  
    • The Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) is essential, embedded in the instructional program, and explicitly taught in all environments to provide pathways to independence.  
    • Providing instruction through the learner’s unique learning media modes (i.e., tactile, print with optical enhancement, auditory) is vital for achievement. 
    • Extensive instruction in and daily use of braille, as appropriate to the strengths and needs of the learner, provide a foundation for literacy and learning within and beyond the classroom 
    • Orientation and Mobility (O&M) skills are crucial for learners to safely navigate their world as independently as possible. 
    • Effective use of assistive technology allows learners to attain a competitive edge in an ever-evolving digital world.
