National DEC Conference
The Division for Early Childhood's 36th Annual International Conference on Young Children with Special Needs & Their Families is a virtual event! We will kick off with pre-conference events on January 21st - 22nd, 2021. Then, from January 25th - 29th, 2021, join us as 130+ sessions offer the latest research, evidence based practices, and "just in time" advice for working with young children with disabilities, their families, and the professionals who serve them. Community Conversations are new this year matching you with like minded professionals and families as we explore our national response in EI/ECSE to issues of inclusion, equity, and social justice as well as virtual learning and other critical issues. Make plans to join us!
