CAST Co-Founder David Rose today received the 2017 J.E. Wallace Wallin Special Education Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC).
The award—which recognizes “an individual who has made continued and sustained contributions to the education of children and youth with exceptionalities”—was presented at CEC’s Annual Convention and Expo in Boston.
In nominating him for the award, Richard Jackson, Associate Professor of Special Education at Boston College and a CAST Research Scientist, wrote: “No single person has had a bigger impact on the special education field in the past quarter century than David Rose. He has literally changed the education conversation as the principal author of the Universal Design for Learning framework.”
