Kansas LEND faculty "hit the road" bringing services and training to rural parts of Kansas. As part of our mission to improve access to care and build capacity, LEND faculty drove a CARE-A-Van nearly 800 miles from Kansas City to Garden City and Hays, Kansas. While there, the team worked closely with local school districts and providers to conduct autism and developmental evaluations.

In addition, the team provided Child-Adult- Relationship-Enhancement (CARE) workshops, sharing behavioral tools that improve outcomes for children with and without developmental disabilities. In three days, the team evaluated 12 children, trained over 50 educators and providers and helped to build a network for future collaborations!
