The Clinical Training Unit (CTU) is an interdisciplinary program that provides training, research, and exemplary services in the assessment and treatment of children with or at risk for developmental disabilities, using a family-centered, community-based, culturally competent approach.

The mission of the CTU is to serve as a center of excellence in the field of maternal and child health; to prepare future leaders, policy makers, clinicians, and researchers in the field of neurodevelopmental and related disabilities; to improve the quality of life for children with disabilities and their families; to serve as part of the public health team; and to provide ongoing continuing education and technical assistance to health care providers and others in the region.
