I394 and I395 – Internship and Seminar I and II
The internship consists of 10 hours per week of directed field experience, tailored to your learning needs and supported through individual supervision and an internship process seminar. Your faculty adviser helps you select an internship site. An on-site supervisor provides you with guidance and weekly supervision. You can intern within your place of employment, if you undertake a special project focused on a new aspect of your work with infants and toddlers. An Erikson faculty adviser provides individual reflective supervision and goes onsite to observe and meet with you and the site supervisor. You also participate in an infant studies internship process seminar. If you wish to meet the requirements for an early intervention specialist credential in the State of Illinois, you must take INF I397 and INF I398 along with the internship and must intern in Part C early intervention services. You must be available during the daytime, Mondays through Fridays, to complete an internship in an early intervention site.
