The representative from this committee serves as the DCD’s voice on the CEC Knowledge and Skills subcommittee. The primary task of the committee is to propose, monitor, maintain, and revise professional standards for preparing teachers and other educational service providers who work with children who have disabilities and their families. Recently, the committee completed a comprehensive review and revision of the specialty set standards for preparing teachers who serve children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
