WHAT TO EXPECT

We allow for each visit to take up to an hour.  Our team is committed to providing the guidance and support you and your loved ones need.  One way to do that is to ensure there is enough time to discuss your concerns and allow time to plan next steps.

Other than yourself, you are encouraged to bring any supporting documents so that our team can best understand your or your loved one’s concern.

This includes things like an IEP, assessment (from school, regional center, psychologist, etc), grade reports, etc.

No, we do not conduct formal assessments for autism, ADHD, etc. However, if needed, we can refer you to individuals who may do so for you. 

The UC-LEND Clinic is able to offer its services because we have a team of health professionals who are able to bring different perspectives from various areas of discipline (medicine, pediatrics, social work, psychology, education, public health).  

In addition, as part of the UCLA Health System, UC-LEND clinic is also a teaching clinic.  You can expect a medical student, resident, or LEND trainee to be present as well.

You may contact our UC-LEND Clinical Director, Bobby Verdugo at bverdugo@mednet.ucla.edu

You may also contact our UC-LEND program coordinator, Kary Calderon at kmcalderon@mednet.ucla.edu
