Interns are placed at an elementary school and a secondary school (either a middle school or a high school). They also have the opportunity to conduct screening and assessments with preschool children and to provide services to preschool students if desired.
Additional opportunities are available as we try to match each intern’s experience to their goals and interests. Our goals are to provide interns with a diverse, well-rounded experience and to have them functioning independently, through a gradual release process, by the end of their internship. Interns will be involved with all roles typically engaged in by school psychologists, including psychological assessment, consultation, counseling, crisis and safety management, involvement in tiered levels of support for students, etc.
