The Council for Exceptional Children initiated Exceptional Children’s Week as a means to educate the public about children with disabilities and garner support for them and special education.
Since its inception, many CEC units have taken advantage of ECW to help people understand the needs and capabilities of exceptional children and the programs that support them in their communities. In addition to increased public awareness, ECW gives community members an opportunity to become involved in the advancement of students with disabilities.
Professionals, parents, students, politicians and the public have worked together to enhance the acceptance of children with disabilities.
Recently, Liberty County School System Exceptional Learning Parent Mentor Lisa Vaughn and parent advisory committee member Melissa went to the Capitol where Gov. Sonny Perdue signed the Exceptional Children’s Week proclamation.
