This internship is organized into two tracks:
The internship provides generalist training as well as specialty competencies related to behavioral treatments and diagnostic assessment of children with developmental disabilities.
The internship is based on the understanding that principles and procedures of the science of behavior form the basis for effective and ethical clinical services. Accordingly, the internship utilizes data-based diagnostic and treatment procedures that are consistent with basic principles of learning and behavior as embodied in the research literature.
Marcus Autism Center provides standards of best practice in diagnostic and clinical evaluations, as well as specific treatment and intervention activities that are designed to conform to established ethical guidelines of the American Psychological Association (APA), the National Standards Project (for autism spectrum disorder) and the Association for Behavior Analysis International.
We are committed to respecting diversity and welcome applications from candidates from under-represented groups in the fields of science and psychology.
