Pediatric Audiology Training Resource Site
There are currently 10 Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities (LEND) programs that receive supplemental awards to expand and augment their pediatric audiology training efforts. The supplemental funding to the LEND programs was made possible through HRSA's Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB). The contract also funded this LEND Pediatric Audiology Training Resource Site for all LEND Pediatric Audiology Programs. If you have questions about this initiative or the activities within, contact Meaghan McHugh at AUCD.

AUCD webinar - February 2014
Funded through the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), the LEND Pediatric Audiology Training Program supports 10 LEND programs to increase the didactic content and clinical experience of trainees in pediatric audiology. This webinar used a combination of information from the literature, retrospective chart review of children with a dual diagnosis and feedback from family and professional focus groups to assist the learner in understanding the unique needs of children who are deaf/hard of hearing with an autism spectrum disorder. Red Flags for atypical communication were presented as well as information about the needs related to communication, functional skills, and integrated care models.
The 2014 LEND Pediatric Audiology Pre-EHDI Workshop
Join us for this interactive workshop designed to encourage active learning and case-based discussions. Participants will learn about issues and challenges surrounding hearing loss and autism spectrum disorder while learning about strategies currently used by LEND programs. At the workshop, participants will be placed in large and small group settings and will be encouraged to share personal examples while learning best practices used by other LEND programs.
A new resource page has been added to the AHRQ Health Care Innovations Exchange: Honing Cultural and Linguistic Competence. This page features innovative programs and quality tools for improving cultural and linguistic competence as well as reducing health care disparities for vulnerable populations, including racial and ethnic minorities.
