NDRD Training Program

The NDRD program provides multidisciplinary training in a variety of services for children and young adults with rare neurodegenerative genetic conditions where neurological, developmental, behavioral, and school problems are addressed. 

Multidisciplinary Training

Our program offers rotations for graduate and postdoctoral students in:

  • Psychology
  • Speech/language pathology
  • Audiology
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Nutrition
  • Education
  • Social work
  • Biostatistics
  • Nursing

Such interdisciplinary emphasis provides a rich environment for fellows to learn about developmental and behavioral issues from many perspectives within a bio-psychosocial framework. Postdoctoral and graduate students have had the opportunity to develop their doctoral dissertations and research projects with the NDRD. Participants who have completed this program include four PhD candidates, one master’s level student, three medical students, and four undergraduate research associates.
