May 9-13 is Exceptional Children's Week!
This week is Exceptional Children's Week! According to the CEC's website, "The Council for Exceptional Children initiated Exceptional Children's Week as a means to educate the public about children with exceptionalities and garner support for special education. Since its inception, this week has served to spotlight the capabilities of children and youth with exceptionalities and the programs that support them in their communities."
