This notice solicits applications for the Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics (DBP) Training Program.  The purpose of the DBP Training Program is to enhance the behavioral, psychosocial, and developmental components of pediatric care by supporting DBP fellowship programs to train health care professionals to use valid and reliable screening and diagnostic tools, in addition to providing evidence-based interventions for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities (DD). Specific aims of the program are to support DBP fellowship programs to prepare fellows for leadership roles as teachers, investigators, and clinicians, and provide other trainees—including pediatric practitioners, residents, and medical students—with biopsychosocial knowledge and clinical expertise, including with ASD/DD.  Awardees should ensure trainees in this program: Receive an appropriate balance of academic, clinical, and community opportunities; Demonstrate a capacity to evaluate, diagnose or rule out, develop, and provide evidence-based interventions to individuals with ASD/DD; Demonstrate an ability to use a family-centered approach; Are culturally competent; and Are ethnically diverse.[1] “Fellowships” refer to non-degree-related training and “traineeships” refer to degree-related training.  As used elsewhere the term "trainee" is generic.  Appendix A: Applicable Standards for Using Grant Funds to Support Trainees/Fellows defines trainees and fellows and provides guidelines for support.  To be considered a long-term trainee, the trainee must complete 300 or more hours of DBP leadership, clinical, and didactic training. [1] For the purposes of this notice of funding opportunity, grantees will meet the objective of ethnic diversity through recruitment of racially and ethnically diverse trainees.   See Project Narrative, Methodology, Trainee Recruitment and Retention for additional information.
