Shaping and Informing Professionals
A poster that was presented at a recent Association of University Centers on Disability (AUCD) conference highlighted the activities of two programs at Utah State University’s Center for Persons with Disabilities—Utah Regional Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (URLEND) and the Center for Technical Assistance for Excellence in Special Education (TAESE). URLEND is part of the Interdisciplinary Training division at the CPD, while TAESE makes up the Technical Assistance division.
The poster, entitled “CPD Leadership Programs: Shaping and Informing Professionals,” was presented by Judith Holt and David Forbush. The poster featured URLEND, which is an interdisciplinary program for graduate students and post-graduate professionals; the Interdisciplinary Disability and Service Learning (IDASL) class, for upper-level undergraduates in a variety of disciplines; the Utah Professional Development Network, which provides technical assistance to educators in the state of Utah; and the Kansas Leadership Conference, which offers relevant information to regular and special education leadership.
