MISSION

The Division of International Special Education and Services (DISES), a division of the Council for Exceptional Children, promotes knowledge, exchange, collaboration, human rights and advocacy to those who provide services for individuals with disabilities.

DISES is a division of the Council for Exceptional Children with the purpose of promoting international communication, cooperation, and progress in education and services for children and youth who have disabilities and/or are gifted and talented — across all age groups, from infancy through adulthood. The Division refers to these children and youth as individuals with exceptional education needs.
