Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) programs were developed by the Health Resources and Services Administration's Maternal and Child Health Bureau to achieve a vision for the 21st century that, "All children, youth, and families will live and thrive in healthy communities served by a quality workforce that helps assure their health and well-being." This brochure describes the LEND program and it's highlights in interdisciplinary leadership training, faculty and trainees, and network activities.
This brochure outlines the functions and recent accomplishements of the nation's 67 UCEDDs, all of whom are members of AUCD, and the locations of each.
AUCD members work with state and local partners to design innovative, efficient programs and policies to achieve the outcomes all Americans want: dignity, meaningful choice, and the opportunity to contribute and succeed. In every US state and territory, our centers serve as a bridge between the university and the community to ensure full participation, independent living, and economic opportunity for all people with disabilities. AUCD looks forward to partnering with 114th Congress, the administration, states, and local governments to achieve these outcomes.
The Association of University Centers on Disabilities, located in Silver Spring, MD, is a national, nonprofit organization that promotes and supports the national network of interdisciplinary centers advancing policy and practice through research, education, leadership, and services for and with individuals with developmental and other disabilities, their families, and communities.
The Trainee Welcome Guide welcomes new trainees to the AUCD network, helps them understand the depth and breadth of the network they are a part of, and outlines some of the many benefits and resources available to them so they can maximize their time as a trainee in one of AUCD's member programs.
