Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities

Stephany Mottet-2010-2011 U of M LEND Fellow

“LEND provided me with so many opportunities that expanded my knowledge in the area of disabilities and interdisciplinary training. Perhaps the most valuable of these experiences was the ability to work closely with a family of a child that had a neurodevelopmental disability. This "Families as Teachers" component really gave us a first-hand look into the lives of those who deal with disabilities every day. Not only was I able to learn what nutrition meant to the family on a day-to-day basis, but I was also able to learn from the family what nutrition professionals could do to provide better care to them as a family unit.”
