Education and Training

The CED serves as a bridge between the university and community to meet the needs of people with disabilities through research, education and service. To help meet these needs the CED educates students, families and professionals on best practices. Education and training is provided through one on one consultations, group trainings, academic coursework and mentoring.

The CED works to train students who will be working in the field of disabilities or health related careers to build a workforce that is knowledgeable about how best to serve individuals with disabilities and their families. Providing continuing education to those already in the workforce is equally important and the CED provides many professional development opportunities across the state.

The CED and many of its programs have training components related to their area of expertise. Visit the Training page linked below to learn more.
