Mission of the DCDT Policy and Advocacy Committee:

The Division on Career Development and Transition's Policy and Advocacy Committee works to build and sustain a strong network within DCDT to ensure our members are well informed of the policy issues concerning students with disabilities. Our committee is pivotal to making progress on Capitol Hill, in federal agencies and in state governments.

In our role as advocates for students with disabilities, the DCDT Policy and Advocacy Committee plays an integral role in advancing policy in federal agencies and federal/state governments. Our committee reviews and analyzes relevant issues for our DCDT Board and membership, provides recommendations to the DCDT board, supports CEC's policy agenda and grassroots initiatives, and finally, works to influence public policy, and converting public policy into best practice.
