The South Carolina annual regional Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Update Conference, Nurturing Developing Minds, provided another opportunity for SC LEND and Georgia LEND to collaborate in February, 2015.
On Thursday, April 23rd, 2015, Congressmen Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Mike Doyle (D-PA), Co-Chairs of the Coalition for Autism Research and Education, hosted a congressional Hill briefing on "Autism and the Aging Out Crisis." The briefing was held to shine a spotlight on the need for increased federal support for improved transition services for the youth and young adults with autism and their families.
The latest edition in the bi-annual LEND Brief series provides information about how diverse communities view, understand, and experience Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental disabilities. It showcases projects and programs that recognize dimensions of culture, socioeconomics, and language through the services and supports they deliver to children with neurodevelopmental disabilities and families.
