Early Childhood Program
This dynamic program will serve children ages 3 to 6 years as part of the KSSB campus programs. The program can provide service for students who are blind, who have a visual impairment or who are deaf-blind.
Focus on Expanded Core Curriculum and Academic Skills
The Early Childhood Program will focus on intensive instruction and emphasize the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) domains unique to students who have a visual impairment. These include: braille readiness, communication, orientation and mobility, social skills, independent living skills, self-determination, technology, and much more.
The goal is to develop skills and concepts in children through intentional instruction rather than incidental learning.
Partnership with Local School District
KSSB works closely with local districts to ensure students are making progress and will successfully transition to more typical settings in their “home” district.
