NTDC Presents: The Recruitment and Role of Self-Advocate Faculty in Training Programs

Wednesday, March 22, 2023
3:00 PM ET - 4:00 PM ET
Location: Virtual


Join us for an interactive discussion on the recruitment and role of Self-Advocate Faculty in training programs. The panel will highlight two training programs in the AUCD Network with experience on this topic. Come prepared with questions and plan to participate in a facilitated discussion! We encourage training programs to invite their Self-Advocate Faculty to participate in the discussion.

At the end of this discussion, participants will:

  • learn the role, responsibilities, and value of Self-Advocate Faculty in training programs;
  • identify successful strategies for recruitment of Self-Advocacy Faculty; and  
  • brainstorm solutions to administrative challenges at your university or hospital for hiring and recruiting Self-Advocate Faculty.

This is an event sponsored by AUCD's National Training Directors Council and the Interdisciplinary Technical Assistance Center (ITAC) on Autism and Developmental Disabilities.
