It is MN DEC's mission to promote policies and advancement of evidence-based practices. We continue to work in partnership with the Centers of Excellence for Young Children with Disabilities so those in Minnesota who work with or on behalf of children with disabilities will have current information and connections at their fingertips. MN DEC is excited to provide information on our statewide activities and policies and practices in the field of early intervention and early childhood special education through this website. 

We welcome your feedback, questions, and ideas for improvement of this website and MN DEC activities. Watch the MN DEC Spotlight! You may see someone you know in the future!
