Dear LEND Partners,

This email serves to announce that the Illinois Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities (IL LEND) program is now accepting applications! The deadline to apply is March 3, 2017.

IL LEND is a 1 year interdisciplinary graduate-level training program that incorporates both didactic and experiential learning in clinical and community-based settings. This program prepares future leaders who will serve children with disabilities (with a focus on autism) and their families through coordinated, culturally competent, and family-centered care, as well as through public health services and policy systems change.

IL LEND is open to graduate students in Behavior Analysis and Therapy, Disability Studies, Nursing, Nutrition, Occupational Therapy, Pediatrics, Physical Therapy, Psychology, Psychiatry, Public Health, Social Work, Special Education, and Speech/Language Pathology, as well as adults with developmental disabilities (self-advocates), and parents and/or siblings of individuals with developmental disabilities.

Please find the applications (graduate, self-advocate, and family applications) and a one-page flyer attached and on our website at: Click Here/dhd/lend/howtoapply/
