About Center for Persons with Disabilities
The Center for Persons with Disabilities (CPD) offers educational opportunities for students, community members, and professionals in fields ranging from business to heath care. Representing more than 14 disciplines, our specialized staff offer mentoring through the interdisciplinary training program and courses offered in academic departments. We offer unique opportunities to participate in supervised research and clinical experiences. Research addresses issues that cross fields ranging from biomedicine to education. In clinical experiences, learners join teams of professionals, family members, and individuals with disabilities to deliver services and supports. Stipends and assistantships are available. Education also includes outreach to the public and private sectors nationally and internationally. Training is offered on the internet and through videoconferencing as well as in traditional formats such as workshops and on-site technical assistance. Topics vary widely. Programs and projects provide technical assistance to individuals with disabilities, families, professionals and paraprofessionals, policymakers and students.
