About the Summit
The four-day 2015 Special Education Legislative Summit, July 12-15, is for teachers, administrators, teacher educators, early interventionists, researchers, teachers in training — anyone who passionately supports improved developmental and educational outcomes for students with exceptionalities and the professionals who work on their behalf.

Get all the knowledge and training you need to be an effective advocate, including:

  • Briefings that explain the critical issues facing special and gifted education and early intervention
  • Insider perspectives from experts in national education and governmental organizations
  • Coaching and practice sessions on delivering effective and compelling advocacy messages
  • Strategies to share CEC’s views and the success stories of the children and youth you support with your members of Congress during Capitol Hill Day, a day of advocacy that will show decision makers in Washington how investing in special & gifted education and early intervention pays off in successful students who are college and career ready and make important contributions to their communities
