Chandni Parikh, BA

Being a part of AZLEND is a great stepping-stone for me as I learn to develop the valuable leadership skills necessary for the interdisciplinary perspectives and collaborative peer learning networks. These skills will equip me with the knowledge that it takes to thrive as a third year graduate student and a researcher in the Family Studies and Human Development Program. Working within a new and diverse setting, I will be exposed to research and training programs directly involved with neurodevelopmental disorders as well as early intervention. This will allow me to further focus on improving the overall well-being of families and children with disabilities in order to pursue a career working in the field of neurodevelopmental disorders along with program evaluation and intervention services.
