The DISES Awards give us a unique opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of our colleagues. Through these awards, we recognize the special educators who have advanced the field and the quality of special education service as well as those members whose contributions have moved the DISES forward in significant ways. Information about the DISES 2022 awards and how to nominate deserving colleagues for the 2022 awards will be announced in the fall of 2021.
