Not Superwoman: Reflections on Beginning Graduate School

Kira Fisher was a new trainee in the year-long Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disorders (LEND) program at the Carolina Institute on Developmental Disabilities, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The primary purpose of a LEND program is to prepare professionals for cutting-edge leadership roles that will allow them to participate in improvement of the health status of infants, children, and adolescents who have, or are at risk for, developing neurodevelopmental and related disabilities, and their families. Kira is the first student with a disability to be admitted to the North Carolina program. Here, she describes her perspective one month into the program.
