NEWS & NOTES FROM CCBD
Let Your Voice Be Heard!!!
The Advocacy and Governmental Relations Committee (AGR) is seeking ideas on topics for our 2017 focus to assist those who work with children and youth with emotional and behavioral disorders. We began soliciting ideas from attendees at the Teacher Educators for Children with Behavior Disorders Conference this past October and wish to hear your ideas too.
Share your topical ideas with us through the survey on the CCBD website - www.ccbd.net - or by contacting any of the members of the CCBD Executive Committee between now and January 15, 2017.
Some past topical ideas have included: seclusion and restraint, position paper on response to intervention, mental health and PBIS monograph, and policy paper on disproportionality -- all of which, and many more, are available on the CCBD website. Please complete the following survey to let your voice, opinions, and ideas be heard.

After several years of careful consideration and planning, we are pleased to announce and celebrate the transition of the Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders (CCBD) Journals, Behavioral Disorders (BD) and Beyond Behavior, to the Hammill Institute on Disabilities (a non-profit, public charity) beginning with issues Volume 42, Issue 2 and Volume 26, Number 1, respectively, without a lapse in service.
We appreciate the vision and leadership of the CCBD Publication Committee led by Kimberly Vannest over the past several years. This committee has worked closely with the CCBD Executive Committee and Presidential lines for several years to secure the future of both CCBD journals by expanding their reach with the support of the Hammill Institute on Disabilities. We appreciate their due diligence and are excited about this transition.
