The predoctoral clinical psychology internship rotation offers a wide range of clinical experiences, including evidence-based evaluation and treatment of ASD and other neurodevelopmental disorders. In the evaluation component of the rotation, interns gain first-hand experiences administering, scoring, and interpreting assessment tools, preparation of psychological reports, and collaboration with the clinical team. In the intervention component, interns may be involved in the provision of individual, family, and group therapy services. Opportunities to participate in infant-toddler diagnostic evaluations are available. In addition, interns are introduced to early behavioral intervention and parent-coaching, based on Early Start Denver Model. Finally, interns participate in case consultations and are encouraged to pursue opportunities to take part in school-based consultations, community presentations, and other training experiences. Supervision is provided in individual and group formats. In addition to the clinical training experiences, the rotation involves active participation in a didactic seminar.
