Creating Access: Internships and Field Experiences
Useful For: Disability Services Professionals, Interpreters, Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals
Field experiences, such as internships, practicums, and clinicals, give students the opportunity to gain the real-world knowledge and skills they need to become gainfully employed. Deaf students have a right to these experiences in the same manner as their hearing peers. These experiences lead to the most rewarding outcomes when all parties—service providers, placement coordinators, and disability services professionals—work together to ensure an accessible placement for students who are deaf.
