Units

Women with TEACH shirts

When you join the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), it’s like getting two memberships for the price of one with our state and provincial Units! 

Units

Units are CEC organizations that add to your experience as a professional special educator, at no additional membership cost to you. These organizations are there for you to connect with colleagues nearby, access local resources, engage in public policy efforts that impact your practice and your students directly, and attend local meet-ups and professional development events. 

Click on the Unit below to visit their website and learn what’s happening near you or find out how you can get involved to move your practice and your profession forward!
