The University of California Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Other Related Disabilities (UC-LEND) training program is a collaboration between the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and the University of California, Riverside (UCR) to provide graduate-level training to improve the health of infants, children, and adolescents who have, or are at risk for developing, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or other neurodevelopmental and other related disabilities (DD).

Our program prepares trainees to assume leadership roles in the delivery of services to children with autism and other neurodevelopmental disabilities in clinical practice, research, and public policy by providing interdisciplinary training opportunities for graduate-level trainees from a variety of professional disciplines, including: education, pediatric neurology, psychology, public health/policy, and social work.

UC-LEND is one of 49 LEND programs around the nation funded by the Maternal Child Health Bureau (MCHB) in 2016, and part of a larger network of interdisciplinary centers advancing policy and practice for and with individuals with developmental and other disabilities, their families, and communities. Watch the following Association of University Centers on Disabilities video for more information about LEND programs and other associated programs, in general.
