Maryland Center for Developmental Disabilities:
2020 Summer Learning Series

Connecting Home, School and Community

The Maryland Center for Developmental Disabilities (MCDD) is hosting a Summer Learning Series from early June through July. The series consist of full-day and half-day workshops with interdisciplinary topics focused on working with students and individuals with intellectual, developmental, and other disabilities and their families. The Summer Learning Series will help a range of professionals (e.g., teachers, social workers, psychologists, nurses, care providers, paraprofessionals, case managers, speech, physical, and occupational therapists, school counselors, care management staff, faith leaders, community members, parents, students, and others) to expand their knowledge and skills to engage in effective advocacy.

MCDD Community and Professional Development scheduled workshops are still ON! Our top priority is the health and well-being of our community. We will continue with most of the sessions as scheduled but switch them to live, real-time, interactive webinars to align with current social distancing policies and to protect the health and safety of our community.

We are still able to offer up to 3.0 Category I CEUs to psychologists and social workers. A certificate of attendance will be made available for all other disciplines. This will help us as we continue  to bring high quality training to our professionals and community members.

Please visit our training page to register for your session!
