Issue Brief on Diversity
Division on Developmental Disabilities, Council for Exceptional Children (NJ1)
During the past year, the Diversity Committee of the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) Board worked with the Board and the Issues Committee Chair to develop an issue brief addressing diversity, its impact on the membership and the wider community that is served by the work of DDD, resulting in recommendations that will influence policy and program/initiative changes within DDD. The diverse membership of DDD is made up of administrators, educators, students and faculty within higher education. This membership is comprised of individuals who implement best and promising practices. This brief is designed to give the membership opportunities to engage in structured and facilitated conversations about diversity issues that impact them professionally. All have a shared role in the identification and implementation of services that reflect best and promising practices for individuals with developmental disabilities, including those who are from diverse cultures.
