While the concept of Interdisciplinary Training may appear reasonably straightforward, the operational mechanics of developing and running an Interdisciplinary Training Program can be quite challenging. This Guide, like those before it, provides a framework from which flexible and variable programs can operate to train future leaders in the field of developmental disabilities.

This Interdisciplinary Training Guide is designed to assist the new Training Director as well as the veteran. It can help a new Director consider the Training Program(s) offered at his/her LEND and/or UCEDD. Likewise, the experienced Training Director can use the Guide to review ideas, re-think potential topics, or expand already existing offerings. We hope the Guide will also assist Training Directors preparing for site visits and writing grant applications.
