IL LEND has 4 training sites across the state. IL LEND is housed in the Department of Disability and Human Development at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), and it is also our main training site. Trainees from the Chicago metropolitan area meet in-person at UIC for their LEND training, which includes weekly didactic and bi-weekly clinical sessions.
