Vermont Interdisciplinary Leadership Education for Health Professionals (VT-ILEHP)


Neurodevelopmental Disabilities clinical focus area

The Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (NDD) clinical focus area includes:

  • The clinical component of this program will take place in the community and is currently being developed; more to come!
  • Family Connection: Each trainee/fellow is paired with a family who has a child or youth with a developmental disability. The purpose is to learn from that family the joys and challenges of raising a child with disabilities.
  • Legislative Training: A basic understanding of the legislative process is provided including how a bill becomes law, how to research a bill in process, and understanding the role of legislative committees. The training culminates with a day at the Statehouse in Montpelier while the legislature is in session. Meeting with children’s and disability advocates, attending a general session in the House or Senate, observing a committee meeting and meeting individually with either a Representative or Senator is included in the day.
