Student Highlight! - Beth Young

Our wonderful lab member, Elizabeth (Beth) Young, was accepted into the UNM LEND program as a trainee.

LEND stands for Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND).
The principal goal of the program is to prepare soon-to-be clinicians who will be working with children with developmental disabilities to advocate for themselves, their clients, and the broad community of children with disabilities and their families. Leadership is emphasized in the program for this reason.

Beth started this fall, and she intends to focus on early-acquired neurological impact, such as TBI and prenatal drug exposure.

This page summarizes the program curriculum nicely:
