Media note UMaine role in hosting experts on inclusive education

The Bangor Daily News and Penobscot Bay Pilot reported that the Council for Exceptional Children Division on Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CEC DADD) is hosting its summer board meeting at the University of Maine on July 20. The next day, July 21, the division, in collaboration with the UMaine College of Education and Human Development and Maine Department of Education Office of Special Services and Inclusive Education, will host its Summer Symposium on campus. “There’s critical work happening in Maine right now to ensure equitable and sustainable access to education for all individuals,” says Sarah Howorth, associate professor of special education at UMaine. “By bringing its summer symposium here, CEC DADD is recognizing these efforts and providing an important learning opportunity for the teachers, caregivers and others who support people with autism and intellectual disabilities in the state everyday.”
