AUCD Emerging Leaders Map 2019

"Centering People with Disabilities/Disabled People"

"Centering" means that PWD/DP are at the core of our work. It requires actively listening to and respecting people with disabilities/disabled people and their needs and wants within our communities. The Map highlights diverse trainees and early career leaders across AUCD's network. Each person was selected for inclusion on the map based on their contributions to the network, how they have demonstrated leadership, and their values and commitment to diversity, inclusion and respect for others.

ARMS of Advocacy: Arkansas and Mississippi LEND

The Arkansas (AR) and Mississippi (MS) LEND program engenders a diverse, interdisciplinary culture of growth and learning in the disability field. Composed of trainees and faculty from 16 health care disciplines, we conduct quarterly solution-focused learning sessions with a local family who has a child with a disability. Trainees have the opportunity to interview each family two times and collaborate in inter-disciplinary teams to find solutions to challenges the family and child may be encountering. A third meeting with each family culminates in trainees presenting their findings.

Beyond the Walls: How Fellows at Boston Children's Go Beyond the Classroom (MA LEND)

By: Sean Fishkind, Boston Children's LEND Fellow and student at Boston College Law School

The interdisciplinary nature of the LEND program gives a unique flavor to each and every week, giving a variety of perspectives to each issue discussed. At Boston Children's LEND program, the interdisciplinary nature is extended beyond the the walls fellows meet in each week. Whether meeting with state leaders for Title V programs, working with Community Based Organizations ("CBOs"), or researching pressing issues in developmental disabilities, fellows are constantly pushing their boundaries. By putting an emphasis on work outside of the "classroom", fellows have expanded their knowledge in a truly interdisciplinary fashion.

Working to Improve the Patient Experience (AL LEND)

Each year, LEND Trainees at the Civitan-Sparks Clinics in Birmingham, Alabama develop a project that will aid in improving the experience of our patients. As an interdisciplinary clinic, families who come into the Civitan-Sparks Clinics see a wide variety of professionals, including Speech/Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Nutrition, Pediatrics, Audiology, Psychology, and Dental. As such, many parents are unsure of what to expect from a visit with each of these disciplines, particularly when they are new to our clinic. Additionally, while the range of areas of concerns that families come in with is broad, visits to each of our disciplines are largely the same clinic to clinic.

VT LEND provides distance accessibility program to Self-Advocate trainees and others

Vermont Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (VT LEND) is a distance accessible program meaning all participants, regardless of where they live, are able to participate in all program components. (http://www.med.uvm.edu/vtlend/home) This effort began with our need to train individuals living in rural parts of Vermont who could not participate when we required in person presence. In 2016 when our collaboration with the US Virgin Islands (USVI) began to provide LEND training to individuals there, we solidified our commitment to having a distance accessible program.
