Minds Behind the MIND
The 2013-2014 Minds Behind the MIND lecture series will resume in November 2013. Leading researchers and clinicians from the UC Davis MIND Institute will present current research and new treatment findings. The presentations will give our community a better perspective on the scope of research being conducted at the MIND Institute, the outcomes of this research, and ways they may support these efforts.
Summer Institute on Neurodevelopmental Disorders
The annual MIND Summer Institute on Neurodevelopmental Disorders is a one-day conference intended for a wide range of professionals, including educators, psychologists, physicians, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech and language pathologists, as well as consumers, family, caregivers, and students. The focus of the Institute is to help participants keep pace with the latest advances in neurodevelopmental research and the most current standards for best practices in prevention, assessment, treatment, and support services, and increase their knowledge and skills in the areas of developmental disabilities, early identification, service provision, inclusion, transition to adulthood, and other medical, legal, social and policy issues related to disabilities. Past conference presentations are available in video format on our website, and most of them are also available on UCTV.
The next conference will be Friday, Aug 1, 2014. Watch this site for more information! (Additional information will be available in the spring.)
Sibling Workshop is a place & time to play games & mingle with new friends who “get it” about the good (and sometimes not-so-good) parts of having a sibling with special needs.
There is no cost to participate in the workshops, though donations are gratefully accepted!
