As Long Island’s premier provider of services to persons on the autism spectrum, DDI has long recognized its responsibility to offer internships, practicum and other learning opportunities to students in our field.

Not surprisingly given our expertise, the vast majority of these placements are in the areas of education and/or the clinical disciplines (i.e., psychology, speech, OT, PT, recreation therapy, etc.).  But let’s not forget the support functions!

Like any other dynamic and burgeoning organization, a lot is happening behind the scenes.

Tomorrow’s broadcast features my colleague, Chris Brady and training Intern, Janella Damaskos. Our conversation illuminates the reciprocal benefit that both employer and student derive by working together. Join our chat as we explore intern and other student placements not only in areas of treatment and intervention - but the many support functions that serve to ensure quality in all DDI programs.
