Leadership in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND)

Through its LEND (Leadership in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities) Program, CERC provides training to professionals in developmental and behavioral pediatrics, special care and general dentistry, medical genetics and genetic counseling, physiatry, psychology, social work, nursing, and other specialties.

CERC is home to one of 36 LEND (Leadership in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities) programs in the US, offering hands-on training to professionals in developmental and behavioral pediatrics, special care and general dentistry, medical genetics and genetic counseling, physiatry, psychology, social work, nursing, and other specialties. Each year, more than 1,000 professionals receive long-term, intermediate-term, or short-term training through the CERC LEND program.

ECC’ s Infant-Parent Court Affiliated Intervention Project was initiated in 2009 to address the specific needs of children under age 3 who are involved in the child welfare system. The Bronx-based Court Project works with parents and their young children who have been placed in foster care due to allegations of maltreatment. The intervention addresses the issues of trauma and attachment that are vital to improving parenting, securing permanency and preventing recurrence of maltreatment.
