PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE


Spring 2014
Acknowledging the Rigor and Role of Special Education Research 
Mike Coyne, 
University of Connecticut 
  

I'd like to start by highlighting the outstanding series of presentations and posters that will be sponsored by the Division for Research during the 2014 CEC Convention in Philadelphia. Sessions include cutting edge presentations by leading researchers in the field as well as featured sessions and a strand on bully prevention and intervention. I'd like to thank David Houchins, Wendy Oaks, and Zac Johnson for their work on the Program Advisory Committee and for putting together such an important, timely, and innovative program.
