Our mission

The Division for Early Childhood is a non-profit membership organization
designed for individuals who work with or on behalf of children with special
needs, birth through age eight, and their families. 

Social Media



The DEC Leadership SIG is open to any DEC member who shares an interest in leadership as a concept or a practice and wants to affiliate with others to develop leadership capacity in themselves and in the field of early childhood special education.  Members come together in several ways, including face-to-face at the DEC conference and through digital means to build and manage the knowledge they need.
