The Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) offers the Policy Insider as a regularly updated blog, a complement to the weekly CEC digest which provides special and gifted education policy news. The CEC Policy Insider digest, which comes via e-mail every Wednesday, is a round-up of stories from the blog, where users can find news in its entirety. The blog has been in existence since 2009.
This blog provides the disabilities community with effectively communicated insight into the policy issues that so often frame how services are provided to students with disabilities. Concerns around student rights to accommodations, testing and the ongoing achievement gap between students with and without disabilities, and the need for early identification and intervention are some of the themes discussed in postings. For information on curricular and instructional resources, sources other than this blog should be consulted.
