This webinar titled, "New Bottles for Old Wine: Lifecourse Framework in Historical Perspective" was the first in a webinar series developed through the Southeast Region Consortium and AUCD.

The objectives of this webinar were:

  • To describe how epidemiological and historical trends affect the system of care for children with developmental disabilities;
  • To explain the lifecourse framework and how it is related to people with developmental disabilities; and
  • To identify at least one way to integrate the lifecourse framework into training professionals in the field of developmental disabilities.

The presenter for this webinar was Jeffrey P. Brosco, MD, Ph.D.
