About This Issue of Leadership Perspectives

by Susan Swanson, Betsy Tannebring and Lee Vorderer

As part of their fall curriculum, the Shriver Center’s Leadership in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) Fellows take on responsibility for developing an issue of the on line journal, Leadership Perspectives in Developmental Disability. While faculty members are available for advice, the Fellows create a structure for the issue, develop a topic, seek authors, and write an article for the issue to establish the context for the collection of work.

The work around the journal has been energizing for all involved and it gave Fellows a chance to connect with many leaders in the developmental disabilities field. The Fellows also benefited from the guidance of people outside the Shriver Center, who responded to Fellows’ questions and made suggestions of contacts. The Fellows and faculty acknowledge their assistance, and we extend our thanks for their involvement in this issue.
