Children and Youth Action Network - C.A.N.

CEC's Children and Youth Action Network C.A.N. is an organized group of volunteers who are dedicated to helping advance policy affecting students with disabilities and/or gifts and talents.

CAN seeks to:

  1. Effect the necessary governmental changes at the local, state and federal levels which will make possible the implementation of CEC policies relating to the education of exceptional children
