Protect children’s rights to a free appropriate public education and early intervention! 

Let’s make it clear to Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and Congress:

  • IDEA funding must be protected and increased, and it must be used for its intended purpose.
  • Policies that restrict public education’s ability to do its job or that go against the principle of a free appropriate public education (FAPE) are unacceptable.
  • Children and youth with exceptionalities and their families have civil rights that must be guaranteed.

Now is not the time to turn back the clock on over 6.7 million children and youth with disabilities and their families. Join us for the 2017 Special Education Legislative Summit, July 9-12, 2017 in Alexandria, Va. and Washington, D.C. We need CEC’s voice to be loud and clear, this year more than ever.

This is not your typical “sit and get” event. At the summit you will be briefed on the latest proposals under consideration by the Administration and Congress. We’ll guide you to make appointments with your Senators and Representatives, arm you with information that will resonate in Congress, and prepare you to tell your stories in a way that will have a lasting impact.

Your profession and students need you, will you join us?
