Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Training Program
The Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics (DBP) Training Program provides funding to train healthcare professionals to use valid and reliable screening and diagnostic tools, in addition to providing evidence-based interventions for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities (DD).
The specific goal of the program is to support DBP fellowships that prepare providers for leadership roles as teachers, investigators, and clinicians, and provide other trainees—including pediatric practitioners, residents, and medical students—with biopsychosocial knowledge and clinical expertise.
Awardees should ensure trainees in this program:
- Receive an appropriate balance of academic, clinical, and community opportunities
- Demonstrate a capacity to evaluate, diagnose (or rule out), develop, and provide evidence-based interventions to individuals with ASD/DD
- Demonstrate an ability to use a family-centered approach
- Are culturally competent
- Are ethnically diverse
Training should be structured on comprehensive, interdisciplinary service models in a variety of institutional and rural/urban community-based settings, with a client population representative of the cultural, linguistic, social, and ethnic diversity of the community. Telehealth and tele-consultation are encouraged to expand the reach of the training programs to practicing professionals in rural and underserved areas.
Public or nonprofit agencies, including institutions of higher education are eligible to apply.
