Lifting My Voice: An Advocate Reflects on MLK Day

By Denise Prehay, Mailman Center LEND Trainee

Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement have taught us in the Disability Rights Movement to advocate. As a self-advocate trainee at the University of Miami's Mailman Center for Child Development's LEND program, I am lifting my voice, not only for myself, but for others.

AUCD Emerging Leaders Map

Showcasing Trainees & Early Career Professionals within the AUCD network

The AUCD Emerging Leaders Map aims to highlight trainees and early career professionals, and their contributions to the AUCD network, while demonstrating the diverse backgrounds and professional orientation of trainees. AUCD is currently seeking emerging leaders to spotlight on the map. Selected individuals will be contacted for additional information and the AUCD Emerging Leaders Map will offically launch in February 2018.

 
 
 

The AUCD Board of Directors has established a number of Councils and Committees that are made up of experts in the field to help the Board address emerging trends and issues, and to facilitate communication across and beyond the AUCD network.

The National Training Directors Council serves as a focus and forum for the identification, discussion, and resolution of problems and issues regarding pre-service interdisciplinary training; to function as a representative voice of the pre-service interdisciplinary training interests and concerns within the network, and to influence the development of and assist in the implementation of established national training policies.

 


 

The National Training Directors' Council (NTDC) was established in 1978 as an integral part of the Association of University Centers on Disabilities, formally American Association of University Affiliated Programs.

Mission
The mission of the Council is to identify the mutual needs of training directors from the UCEDD and LEND networks and to promote collaborative actions to improve the effectiveness of interdisciplinary training.

Goals & Objectives
The Council fulfills this mission to the Association and its constituent membership by pursuing the following goals and objectives:

  • To serve as a forum for the identification, discussion, and resolution of issues affecting interdisciplinary training.
  • To serve as a representative voice of the training concerns within the AUCD network, and as such, to influence overall policies and procedures that affect training.
  • To act as a communication vehicle for the implementation of national training policies through liaison with other groups.
