Our interns benefit from a host of duties, with supervision and support from our staff. Upon arrival, interns are provided with training about our program and working with children with disabilities. Of our group of 15-20 interns, the interns are split into classes. Classes are organized by children’s age and usually contain between 8-12 children, with 2-3 interns assigned to each class. Within each class will be a variety of disability types, disorders, ability levels and goals (see ‘student profile‘ page for more information).
Interns receive extensive training the week prior to camp to prepare for the camper’s arrival. Once camp begins, interns plan and execute group lessons, from reading books to science, under the guidance and support of the assigned SLP.
