LEND Forum

MN LEND welcomes Dr. Steve Warren at the May 2014 LEND Forum.


Four MN LEND Fellows attended the Gatlinburg Conference on research and theory in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in Chicago, IL. The Gatlinburg Conference provided three MN LEND Fellows the opportunity to showcase their current research activities. Their work showcases the diversity of research around the well-being of children, adolescents, and families affected by neurodevelopmental disabilities all of which are of critical importance to LEND programs.
