Professional Experience Prior to the Practicum

[PDF] "Blue" Professional Experience Form (127 KiB)

It is important students gain professional experience with a variety of populations in a variety of settings before registering for the practicum. The goal is to work with at least four different populations in four different settings. Use the “blue” form to verify these experiences.  The "blue" form must be shown to the TR advisor prior to you registering for the practicum.
