Class Year: 2015
What’s happening? We’d love to hear about how your internship is going: This summer, I have the opportunity through an Alumnae Regional Scholarship to work with a psychologist who specializes in autism. Currently, I am working in an autism support classroom and using ABA (applied behavior analysis) to teach the children how to ask for things they need or may want. So far, I have been learning so much and having lots of fun!
How I heard about my internship: Alumnae Regional Scholarship contacted me and asked me to apply and in order to apply, I had to have an internship in mind, I wanted to stay local to home [Lancaster County, PA] while learning something I was interested in and found my internship.
Why I applied for my internship: I wanted exposure to the field of psychology and experience working with children with autism.
Look for blog posts from Mikah throughout the summer!
