Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) Center

The LEND Program offers graduate-level and professional training to enhance the lives of individuals with autism spectrum disorder and neurodevelopmental disabilities. We prepare students, professionals, families, and self-advocates to lead in their fields, providing high-quality, evidence-based care, promoting inclusion, and fostering interdisciplinary clinical competence. LEND focuses on policy, advocacy, research, and clinical skills to drive positive change at all levels, from individuals to systems.
