Through the Utah Regional Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Program (URLEND), trainees  from  different  disciplines  are given the opportunity to attend  an exchange experience in another PacWest LEND program.  The  exchange  experience  includes  a  full  agenda  meeting  different leaders and touring a variety of organizations involved in the care of children and youth with special health care needs. These experiences  allow trainees to compare and contrast how different programs function in different geographic regions. It also allows trainees to meet strong leaders from different fields in different systems, states, and cultures, who are caring  for  children  with  special  health  care  needs  and  their  families. Financial support for these exchanges is provided by  LEND program sending the trainee.  Following is a photo journal by trainee Katie Ahlers about her experience.
