VIDBE-Q Volume 65 Issue 4 However, there are certain areas beyond the core curriculum that students with visual impairments need specific instruction that others may learn incidentally. Unfortunately, due to academic pressures the ECC often gets pushed aside due to lack of time. There are various productive ways to build the ECC into routines that can greatly benefit students with visual impairments throughout their life. Skills learned through the ECC are critical and it is a team effort to ensure all areas are addressed. Throughout this issue I hope you find useful strategies on how to embed the ECC into daily instruction, understand its importance, and find ways to work as a team to address areas of the ECC. Over the past few months, a lot has been going on at CEC headquarters! The 2021 Convention has officially been moved to a virtual format (March 8 th -March 13 th 2021). We are hopeful that this will open doors for more professionals and students to attend. Be sure to check our website and Facebook page over the next few months for more information on the Convention, DVIDB preconvention, and upcoming webinars. Our program advisory committee is working hard to build a high-quality session line-up for the convention in March. A special thank you to all of you for your hard work!
