Location: Webinar

 

Webinar Description:

Join us for a discussion about the Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (NDD) Core Curriculum Resources! Originally developed to support LEND curriculum development at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, the Resources are moving to AUCD in Summer of 2020 in part to extend their reach across the AUCD network and will be relevant for (and available to) all network members engaged in pre-service training activities. This webinar will walk participants through the history of the NDD Core Curriculum Resources, how to access them at their new home on AUCD's SharePoint site, and examples of how the Resources can be used to build or supplement their training activities. A brief introduction of the NDD Core Curriculum Resource's Editorial Board members and a short question and answer session will also occur.
