The Neurodevelopment Project is designed to incorporate neurodevelopmental(ND) methodology in teacher education, enhancing the preparation of teachers to recognize and address individual learning differences of all K-12 students.  The project encompasses pre-service and in-service activities, reinforcing the philosophy of the Center for Teaching and Learning that professional development is a continuum.  It entails internal collaboration among CSUN faculty, in addition to external collaboration between university and K-12 personnel.  The goal for teachers is to effectively develop customized plans by creating profiles (strengths/weaknesses) and implementing strategies (accommodation/ interventions) that relate directly to individual students.

Neurodevelopmental methodology has been implemented through the Accelerated Collaborative Teacher (ACT) Preparation Program at CSUN, a one year, full time graduate program for elementary-secondary and special education teacher candidates.   Ultimately, the ND Project will result in a training model to facilitate dissemination and replication.
