Gaetano R. Lotrecchiano, EdD, PhD is an assistant professor of Pediatrics, Clinical Research and Leadership at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. He is a member of the Center for Neuroscience Research within the Children’s Research Institute at Children’s National Medical Center. As the principal investigator of the District of Columbia Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (DC LEND) program Dr. Lotrecchiano has been greatly instrumental in developing a program that responds to the mandates of the granting agency by providing a holistic approach to adult health professional training that accommodates for competency based learning designs as well as state-of the art-blended learning delivery techniques. As a member of the education faculty at Children’s and teaching faculty at the George Washington University School of Medicine he has been able to use the work accomplished in the DC LEND program to further the cause of education throughout the institution through mentoring and instruction on how to provide an educational response to complex learning initiations. The outcomes of these endeavors have resulted in alliances with multiple regional universities and initiatives including the Innov@N (Innovation) for Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers initiative at George Washington University, support to the Maternal and Child Health funded Pathways Program at Howard University, and the newly funded Khalifa Bin Zaven al Nehavan Foundation initiative to create a sustainable rehabilitation center and professional education in the United Arab Emirates. His research interests include complexity leadership and transdisciplinary team science and these areas of interest make up his unique contribution to the DC LEND program in theory and practical application. He has served in a number of positions administering disabilities and rare disease programs throughout his career including the (Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC), Rare Diseases Clinical Research Center (RCDRC) and has been responsible for leadership and academic training programs at Children’s National developing the Academic Services Assistance Program (ASAP). Dr. Lotrecchiano’s recent published material is in the International Journal of Transdisciplinary Research and VINE: The Journal of Information and Knowledge Management Systems. Presently, he is working on the 7th Edition of Batshaw, Roizen, and Lotrecchiano, Children with Disabilities, Baltimore: Brookes Publishing, scheduled to be completed in 2012 which will contain newly imagined learning resources for instructors and students.
