The primary tasks of the extern will be conducting, scoring, analyzing, and writing integrative assessments, as well as providing feedback to families. Externs will engage in assessment activities on average for 9-10 hours per week, with the goal of conducting ½ to 1 assessment per month. In addition, externs will see 1-2 individual therapy clients, as well as engage in up to one group therapy session per week, working alongside a multidisciplinary team.

Assessments conducted by our department include:

  • Comprehensive Autism Assessments
  • Developmental Evaluations
  • Psycho-educational Evaluations
  • Comprehensive Executive Functioning and Attention Evaluations
  • Admissions Testing
  • Disability Eligibility Assessments
  • Targeted Assessments for College Students and Adults (math or reading disorders, etc.)

Therapy experiences will be tailored to the extern’s experience, interest, and goals. Therapy activities available include:

  • Helping to co-lead a multidisciplinary therapy group for children with developmental disabilities and challenges. A psychologist and occupational therapist lead this group (and some groups include a speech language pathologist). Together, they utilize play as a medium to achieve developmental goals involved in social interactions, speech language, motor planning, and emotional regulation. They also have weekly meetings for treatment planning and parent consultations. This group utilizes Stanley Greenspan’s Floortime model.
  • Co-leading afterschool social skills and anxiety groups with a licensed clinical social worker or psychologist.
  • Individual counseling and play therapy for children to emerging adults ages 4 to 19 with a variety of presentations.
