Thursday, June 7, 2018- Friday, June 8, 2018
Location: Bethesda, MD

This was the first of two meetings (the other held in conjunction with the AUCD Conference) for LEND Directors in 2018. The goal was to create opportunities for LEND Directors to network, learn from one another, and engage in collaborative work on topics of mutual interest. The meeting was hosted by AUCD's Interdisciplinary Technical Assistance Center on Autism and Developmental Disabilities (ITAC), with funding support from MCHB.

Agenda and Slides

The full meeting agenda, developed with assistance from the ITAC Project Advisory Committee an MCHB, can be found in the "Download" box on the right side of this page.  Complete slide decks for each day of the meeting have also been posted.

Workshops and Group Discussions

The meeting included two 90-minute workshops:

  • Workshop A: How can Directors learn from each other to more effectively work toward their program-level objectives?
  • Workshop B: How can the network demonstrate our collective impact, lead, and continue to move the needle on broader public health issues?  

Action planning templates for both workshops can be found in the "Download" box on the right side of this page.  Notes from each of the topical breakout groups can be accessed via a Dropbox folder, which also includes notes from two other sessions:

  • The Role of LEND in Developing Leaders with ASD/DD (all participants)
  • Transition Work Group / Task Force Interest Meeting (optional)

LEND Directors Orientation

Prior to the start of the full meeting, ITAC hosted an in-person LEND Directors Orientation with assistance from MCHB and a handful of veteran network members.  An agenda can be found in the "Download" box on the right side of this page, along with a complete slide deck.  Registered participants received several resource documents in advance, all of which can be accessed via a Dropbox folder that also contains notes from the "Building a Program" breakout discussions that took place during the session.
