The Westchester Institute for Human Development (WIHD) is recruiting leadership trainees for its Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) training program. Trainees will have the opportunity to develop the skills necessary for a career focused on helping children with special needs and their families.
The program includes three overview courses, clinical experience, and public policy and leadership activities, including community training and family advocacy. Trainees will have the opportunity to earn a certificate from New York Medical College in “Children with Special Health Care Needs.”
Trainees may be health and education professionals or graduate students, or parents or siblings of children or adults with disabilities. Trainees may have earned or be working toward a masters degree in a health or education discipline. A wide variety of disciplines are represented among the trainees, including child psychology, pediatrics, social work, health advocacy, nursing and law. Trainees may also be Family Specialists (parents or siblings of a person with a disability). Trainees should be able to participate in a 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. program on Thursdays from September to May at the Westchester Institute for Human Development in Valhalla, New York.
