The purpose of this symposium is to train UCEDD and LEND Training Directors, faculty, and staff how to scale up efforts to promote self-determination using products developed by the National Gateway to Self-Determination (NGSD). The symposium was a four-part training focusing on the following areas: 1) An overview of self-determination; 2) an in-depth review of the NGSD website, resources, and products; 3) Strategies to infuse these products into UCEDD and LEND training and program activities; and 4) Technical assistance with scaling up efforts to promote self-determination across multiple adult outcome domains (e.g., employment, community living, health, etc.).
