What Should Professionals Do to Help Reinforce Expanded Core Curriculum Skills?
|Listen to Phil Hatlen’s advice on what professionals can do to help parents teach their children the expanded core curriculum skills.|
My name is Phil Hatlen. I’m currently the superintendent of the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Austin, Texas.
What do you believe professionals should do to help parents teach and reinforce the expanded core curriculum at home, in the school, and in the community?
We professionals should not assume that parents are familiar with the expanded core curriculum unless we help them to become informed, so we need always be available to help parents understand the importance of the expanded core curriculum and, to whatever extent possible, to become partners with us in teaching the ECC. We need to collaborate. We need to work as a team. We need to be partners in the instructional program that the expanded core curriculum requires.
