History of KYCEC

The International Council for Exceptional Children was founded in 1922 as a nonprofit organization to serve those who serve the educational needs of exceptional children.  The Kentucky Derby Chapter #5 was one of the first chapters.  In 1955, Mary May Wyman organized the Kentucky Federation of Chapters and Divisions #234, and served as it's first president. Listing of KYCEC Presidents since 1955.

Over the years, CEC has compiled an impressive record of accomplishments in serving both the professionals and the children.  CEC has proven to have a substantial impact on federal and state legislators in promoting high standards for the profession and in illuminating a horizon of opportunity for the children. 

CEC Serves all the interests of the special education profession.  CEC invites professionalism, experience, and vision of their members to foster the best possible future for exceptional children.
