Southeast Regional Consortium



2012-0211 Region Southeast

The Southeast Consortium was formed in 2004 and is represented by all states in the southeastern United States that have either a Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) and/or University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) program. These programs work broadly with individuals with autism, intellectual disabilities, and other types of developmental disabilities and their families across the lifespan, typically focusing on research, training, and clinical/community services.



The mission of the Southeast Consortium is to develop and provide coordinated training initiatives to the Title V and related state agency workforce constituents in this region of the country.



To share as much of our regular training initiatives as possible with state agency constituents and trainees, and to work in conjunction with current Title V needs in the region.



Our most recent internal list comprises more than 125 different topics across 14 different categories including: Advocacy, Assessment Practices, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Other Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Children with Special Health Care Needs, Families and Culture Competence, Genetics, Language/Learning/Development, Leadership, Nutrition, Pharmacology, Public Policy, Social-Emotional Behavior/Mental Health, Oral Health, Vocational and Transition Issues.



The Southeast Consortium and AUCD Presents! is a webinar series designed to highlight the work of member LEND and UCEDD programs. Click on the links below to view archived webinars.
