The Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) is an international community of professionals who are the voice and vision of special and gifted education. CEC's mission is to improve, through excellence and advocacy, the education and quality of life for children and youth with exceptionalities and to enhance the engagement of their families.
CEC represents more than 22,000 members of the special education community, including teachers, administrators, support staff, paraprofessionals, psychologists, and higher education professionals.
CEC members represent the myriad of professionals in the field of special education who work with children and students from birth to Grade12 in schools (public or private), universities, childcare facilities, local education agencies, state or provincial education agencies, private practice, nonprofits, and vocational or technical schools.
