Every year, the Florida chapter of CEC hosts a conference for local educators to meet to receive training, professional development, resources, and support to continue to improve academic and behavioral outcomes for students with disabilities in the state of Florida. Presentations and collaborations are provided by university faculty, school and district personnel, and state policymakers.
