Q: Who is the KIND Curriculum intended for?

A: The primary audience for the KIND Curriculum are medical professionals (pediatricians, family practice doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, medical specialists and sub-specialists) that work with children with or at risk for neurodevelopmental disorders.  Allied professionals like psychologists, teachers, social workers and therapists, will find many of the topics relevant to their practices.

A: People learn at different paces and will explore in greater or less depth. However, on average, users report it taking about 20 minutes to complete a given module/topic. Each course has about 20-25 topics. Thus, on average, you may expect an entire course to take about 6-8 hours if you were to explore all modules/topics and their components.

Q: What is each topic/module?

A: Each topic/module contains a succinct topic delivered via professional video and interactive components (e.g., interactive digital tools, infographics). Additional resources and references are generally provided. Further, self-checks enable learners to check their understanding before and after learning.
