CEC is currently engaged in the process of updating its Professional Practice Standards, which are used to inform preparation programs, national accreditation organizations, and licensing agencies.
You may also know many Special Interest Divisions, including DCDT, produce Knowledge and Skill Specialty Sets that reflect different disability areas, different state license structures, and the many advanced roles fulfilled by special educators in particular transition specialists.
In fact, you may have been a part of the DCDT process when we developed the CEC Advanced Special Education Transition Specialist K & S set as we involved a great number of our members.
This information is important for both CEC and DCDT as we determine how best to utilize the specialty sets in particular the Advanced Special Education Transition Specialist. In addition CEC and DCDT would like to develop supporting content that will best serve practitioners, complement CEC's next generation of Professional Practice Standards, and move the field of career development and transition forward.
We encourage you to share the link with other colleagues, even those who are not DCDT or CEC members! We want to make sure that the Transition Specialist set best represents the needs of the field.
