Take your story and our message to Congress.
This July, hundreds of special education advocates from across the country will fill the halls of Congress to let their Senators and Representatives know what children and youth with exceptionalities need to succeed. At the 2017 Special Education Legislative Summit, we’ll prepare you to advocate in a meaningful way, connect you with other advocates from your state, and guide you to make appointments. Once you are on Capitol Hill, you will have the opportunity to speak with members of Congress and their staff. Hear from other special education professionals who have participated in and advocated at past Special Education Legislative Summits.
At this year’s Summit, national policy and education experts will provide you with:
- Briefings and insider perspectives that explain the critical issues facing special and gifted education and early intervention.
- Coaching and practice sessions on delivering effective and compelling advocacy messages.
- Strategies to share CEC’s messages and your students’ success stories with your members of Congress.
