The overall goal of the Simpson-Ramsey Neurodevelopment Symposium is to highlight translational research in developmental disabilities across the lifespan and from a multidisciplinary perspective. This event attracts a broad audience of academics, professionals, trainees, families, and self-advocates and is hosted by the Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities with support from the LEND, UCEDD, Civitan International Research Center (CIRC), and UAB Department of Pediatrics, Division of Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics. This is a full-day CE event with an agenda highlighting local and national speakers as well as current and former trainees. The Simpson-Ramsey Symposium has featured distinguished lecturers locally and from across the country sharing their research and expertise in developmental disabilities to professionals in various disciplines serving the state of Alabama. Additionally, a former UCEDD/LEND trainee presents and is recognized for outstanding work with the Fred J. Biasini Outstanding Former Trainee Award.
