The New Jersey Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (NJLEND) Program Enters Its Fourth Year at The Boggs Center

NJLEND 2019-2020 CohortThe Boggs Center’s NJLEND program began its fourth year with an orientation on September 6, 2019. Through the NJLEND program, graduate-level fellows prepare to provide interdisciplinary, family-centered, culturally competent care addressing the complex needs of children with autism and related disabilities as well as other maternal and child health populations. Fellows participate in the weekly Didactic Seminar Series, as well as a range of experiential learning, leadership development, and clinical training opportunities. In addition, each NJLEND Fellow is mentored by a family living with disability. Children’s Specialized Hospital, with its extensive expertise and patient population with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and broad network of clinical services statewide, is the primary partner for clinical training aspects of the program. Rutgers’ Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center is also a clinical partner.

NJLEND represents a unique set of university, state, local, and family partnerships. The 2019-2020 NJLEND cohort includes 13 fellows, representing 5 academic disciplines from Rutgers and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, as well as family fellows who have children with disabilities. NJLEND provides fellows the opportunity to learn from experts in the field and receive support and mentoring from faculty in their respective discipline. NJLEND faculty come from 8 unique disciplines, including: Dentistry, Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics, Genetics, Nursing, Nutrition, Psychology, Social Work, and Family.

The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities, a component of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Department of Pediatrics, is home to the NJ Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) Training Program. NJLEND is funded through the Maternal and Child Health Bureau in the federal Health Resources and Services Administration within the U.S. Department of Health and Services. Funding for LEND programs is authorized by the federal Autism CARES Act (Collaboration, Accountability, Research, Education, and Support) [P.L. 113-157].
