The UC Davis MIND Institute’s Distinguished Lecturer Series are public lectures by nationally and internationally-recognized researchers in neurodevelopmental disabilities.

This annual event is intended to help participants keep pace with the latest in evidence-based treatment and research on neurodevelopmental disabilities and the implications for best practices in prevention, assessment, and treatment. ​We are excited to offer this inter-disciplinary event, bringing together researchers and self-advocates to share valuable information and personal experience. We welcome all health care professionals, educators, therapists, self-advocates and families/caregivers to this free virtual event.

The parent support group, the African American Developmental Disability Parent Alliance is now named Sankofa Parent Support Group. The word Sankofa comes from an African language which means “go back and fetch it” which is significant to the mission and purpose of the group which is to take information and resources we learn back to people in the community. Sankofa was founded in 2015 in order to meet the unique needs of parents of Black children with autism and other developmental disabilities. Since our inception, Sankofa has supported the needs of the parents by providing advocacy and resources that have increased awareness of developmental disabilities at the community level.
