However, our clinic operates as one program component of a UCEDD
. Consequently, the new findings of our study may not be generalizable to CSHCN in general.
A Diversity and Inclusion Training Action Planning grant of over $275,000 was awarded to the Georgetown University UCEDD to lead a consortium, including the UCEDDs at the University of Southern California and Georgia State University, that will develop a diversity training curriculum that builds the skills, knowledge, strategies, and methods to guide the work of sustaining diversity and cultural and linguistic competence within developmental disability programs.
Funding from the Administration for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) will establish a new community of practice on disability for states, commission a diversity gap analysis of the developmental disabilities network, and fund diversity fellowships at University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDDs) across the country.
To this purpose, AIDD has awarded grants to University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, Education, Research and Service (UCEDD) for:
Diversity training across the UCEDDs to guide and sustain cultural competence within programs that serve people with developmental disabilities.
LEND programs operate within a university system, usually as part of a UCEDD or children's hospital, and collaborate with local university hospitals and/or health care centers.
