Youth Advisory Committee Seeks Input on Aversives/Restraints and Healthcare

NCD's Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) needs your help. The YAC is gathering information as background for two different papers to support recommendations the YAC will make from a youth perspective. The role of the YAC is to provide recommendations directly to NCD regarding policy and issues affecting the lives of youth with disabilities nationwide. One topic is about the use of aversives and restraint. The other topic is about access to healthcare. For details about how you can have an opportunity to share your perspectives, please contact NCD's designated federal official for YAC, Dr. Gerrie Hawkins at ghawkins@ncd.gov. Thank you.

Quarterly Meetings

NCD's spring quarterly meeting will be held April 21-23, 2008, at the Westin Arlington Gateway, 801 North Glebe Road, Arlington, VA.
