The URLEND program is focused on increasing the capacity of professionals in health care and related disciplines who will provide family-centered, culturally-competent interdisciplinary care to youth with disabilities and their families. URLEND is funded through a grant from Maternal and Child Health Bureau to the University of Utah with a subcontract to USU. Faculty and trainees from five states (Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and North Dakota) participate in the URLEND program. Each year approximately 35 URLEND trainees participate in the program. The URLEND program faculty include approximately 20 professionals across the partner states. URLEND is overseen by two Co-Directors – one at the University of Utah and the other at USU.

The Center for Persons with Disabilities is Utah’s federally designated University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD). The CPD was established in 1972 by Dr. Marvin Fifield, and was the first UCEDD program in the nation to focus on the educational and social needs of children with disabilities. Over our 45-year history, the CPD has grown into one of the largest UCEDD programs in the nation and is recognized as a pioneer in research, training, technical assistance, and services for children and adults with disabilities, families, and the professionals who serve them.
We are working together to create inclusive communities and improve the lives of children and adults with disabilities and their families through sustainable innovation, collaborative research, responsive service, and interdisciplinary training and education.
