One of the most powerful tools DEC members have is the abiltiy to use our collective voice to advocate for young children with disabilities and their families.
As a Division of the Council for Exceptional Children, DEC has the unique advantage of truly understanding early intervention and early childhood special education issues and being able to leverage the power of CEC--the recognized leader in advocacy for special education policy. CEC has a long history of success in impacting policy and legislation.
From the Legislative Action Center to the Policy Insider Blog, our members have unparalleled access to policy resources and the tools to become effective advocates.
At DEC, we have the tools to teach our members about policy, create dialogue with policymakers, and energize a network of members around the globe.
