Assistant Secretary Michael Yudin, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services at the US Department of Education, delivers a keynote address at Visions of Community 2014. He passionately describes the importance of parents, educators and policymakers having a shared vision of high expectations for all children, including those with disabilities, and how those high expectations will improve the opportunities for students as they mature into adulthood.
The Federation for Children with Special Needs provides information, support, and assistance to parents of children with disabilities, their professional partners, and their communities. We are committed to listening to and learning from families, and encouraging full participation in community life by all people, especially those with disabilities.The Federation believes that individual differences in people are a natural part of life, and that disabilities provide children and adults with unique perspectives, insights and abilities which contribute to the overall well-being of society.
