Abstract

This article describes the role of pediatric Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (pediatric PM and R) in the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) program. It provides an overview of the LEND program and the field of pediatric rehabilitation, details the scope and resources of the national LEND network, and describes the role of pediatric PM and R within the Virginia LEND (Va-LEND) program. Emphasis is placed on the natural fit of pediatric rehabilitation within the LEND program in order to encourage others in the field to become involved in their own state or regional LEND program.
