DIVISION OF INTERNATIONAL SPECIAL EDUCATION AND SERVICES
DISES promotes international communication, cooperation, and progress in education and services for children who have disabilities and/or gifts and talents. DISES serves as a catalyst for the international exchange of special education practice, promotes international research, and sponsors forums for professional development, and establishes networks that foster international association.
DISES also collects and disseminates information regarding international meetings, exchange opportunities, and special education activities and practices throughout the world. It also publishes a newsletter for its members, as well as the DISES monograph, The View Finder: Expanding Boundaries and Perspectives in Special Education, a collection of topics reflecting the current world scene with regard to the education of children and disabilities and/or who are gifted.
International CEC members may join DISES and 16 other CEC professional divisions. Many of the divisions publish authoritative, specialized journals. All of them send informative newsletters to members each year.
