Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities (LEND) Training Program
The Cincinnati LEND Program is part of a national network of 52 Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities (LEND) programs across the country, funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau of the federal government. LEND programs share the same overall mission of improving the health of infants, children and adolescents with, or at risk for, neurodevelopmental and related disabilities including autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). A major focus of LEND is to increase the number of professionals with the knowledge and skills to provide evidence-based screening, diagnosis and treatment of developmental disabilities, including ASD.
The Cincinnati LEND program is affiliated with The University of Cincinnati and operates within Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). This collaboration provides the program with expert faculty, facilities and other resources necessary to provide exceptional interdisciplinary training and services. LEND trainees come from over 10 disciplines and include family members of children with disabilities.
