Interdisciplinary Training

Support from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau’s LEND (Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities) program has allowed us to create and maintain an interdisciplinary training model. Child clinical psychology fellows are part of the LEND program, which also includes pediatrics, social work, occupational and physical therapies, speech-language pathology, nutrition, neurology, psychiatry, education and audiology. Our fellows also actively participate in a structured series of interdisciplinary seminars, rounds and clinics. 

Didactic Experiences

All trainees from the Center for Autism Services, Science and Innovation (CASSI™) have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of didactic seminars and grand rounds, both at Kennedy Krieger Institute and through the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

  • CASSI Clinical Psychology Seminar
  • CASSI Annual Autism Conference
  • Diversity and Culture Seminar
  • Professional Development Seminar
  • Case Conferences
  • ADOS Seminar
