Council for Exceptional Children, DC Chapter

I attended a very interesting meeting this afternoon with a group of teachers who are eager to revive the Council for Exceptional Children DC Chapter.

I know there is a good number of special education teachers, social workers, paraprofessionals, parents, advocates, who'd be interested in joining us. I believe all of us are collaborating with those who work with special children (in one way or another). CEC exists to support and empower all of us who are working to maximize the potentials of exceptional needs students.

PLEASE JOIN US! The fellowship/ meet & greet activity is scheduled on September 20 (please mark the date). Here's about the CEC:
