CEC's New Policy--Behind the Scenes
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v48 n6 p313-314 Jul-Aug 2016
CEC's new policy is a result of efforts begun in 2009 by members of CEC's Educators With Disabilities Policy Workgroup. The board-appointed workgroup was chaired by Jennifer Diliberto and included Mary Ruth Coleman, Marjorie Terhaar-Yonkers, Susan Osborne, and Stephanie Demayo. These CEC members' desire to create and support safe environments in which teachers can disclose their disabilities, and to make the gifts teachers with disabilities can offer available to all students, drove the push for CEC's new policy statement. This article briefly describes the workgroup's development of a CEC member survey, the results of the survey, and the subsequent development of the policy based on the survey results.
