The CEC Annual Convention and Expo is the premier event for the special education community, including those who work with students birth to grade 12, administrators at all levels, and those working in higher education. Focused on professional development and networking, it’s the prime event each year for the field.
CEC is committed to providing an inclusive environment and will work to assure accessibility to the best of our ability. In addition to the accessibility features at the Orlando World Center Marriott, CEC will:
- Designate preferential seating for communication access in all sessions
- Designate space for wheelchair/scooter placement in all sessions
- Provide ASL interpreters and real time captioning (CART) at the three general sessions
Registrants will have the opportunity to request additional accommodations when registering for CEC2022. Please contact Judy Harrison with any questions.
The CEC convention staff and volunteer leadership are closely monitoring all recommendations set forth by the CDC and World Health Organization. In addition, our team is closely following best practices set forth by the meeting planning industry, including managing attendee flow, room setups and sizes, meal service, and expo management. All attendees will be expected to follow appropriate protocols set forth by CEC in the weeks leading up to the convention, which may include wearing masks, taking temperatures, social distancing, and additional protocols relevant at the time of the convention.
