Special Interest Divisions

CEC's Special Interest Divisions

CEC's divisions individually explore a single facet of special education in thoughtful detail, bringing together professionals to exchange ideas, stimulate research, and promote expertise in key areas of each fast-growing field.  Journals, newsletters, conferences, workshops, and other professional development activities put you in touch and promote focused discussions among specialists. Help facilitate political action on issues that directly affect your own practice and interests. Network to bring you closer with experts and your professional peers.  Take advantage of this special opportunity to increase your knowledge and become more deeply involved in your profession. Join today and participate in as many divisions as interest you!  Only CEC Members are eligible to join the divisions.
