Core Function: Technical Assistance and Outreach Training
The purpose of the Interdisciplinary Computer-Based Educational Modules is to build the capacity of health care professionals who work with people that have developmental disabilities, by enhancing their knowledge of the role of various disciplines.
The program consists of six introductory modules (audiology, physical therapy, speech and language, occupational therapy, nutrition and social work) prepared by LEND faculty and other experts. Each module focuses on the contribution and roles of a specific health care discipline illustrating the unique and shared roles of the various disciplines within an interdisciplinary team setting. These web-based modules allow self-paced learning and disseminate the interdisciplinary training curriculum to a broad audience.
All UW LEND trainees are required to complete the computer-based educational modules. The modules may be accessed by other trainees which may include trainees in LEND programs across the United States, as well as undergraduate and graduate students in various academic and training programs at the University of Washington.
