Projects

The NH and ME Leadership in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Program (NH-ME LEND) is a collaboration among Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, the College of Health and Human Services at the University of New Hampshire, and the Center for Community Inclusion and Disability Studies/UCED at the University of Maine-Orono. The purpose of NH-ME LEND is to improve the health of children and youth with neurodevelopmental disabilities by preparing leaders to enter the field of maternal and child health.
Employment Safety Training supports the needs assessment process designed to address gaps, deficiencies, and unmet occupational safety and health training needs.  The pool of available health and safety trainings for workers with IDD is alarmingly shallow, especially trainings that are culturally competent and accessible. Through the Department of Labor (DOL) Susan Harwood Training Grant, the Institute on Disability seeks to address the shortage of occupational health and safety training for workers with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) by offering New Hampshire disability service providers the Staying Safe at Work curriculum developed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), in partnership with UC Berkeley’s Labor Occupational Health Program (LOHP)
