This final practicum provides students with an opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills for supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities in appropriate disability-service settings under the supervision of the practicum supervisor and a designated mentor. In addition to using observation and interacting supportively with people, students will be expected to plan and implement activities relevant to the individuals and the agency. In the lecture portion, students will discuss working with diverse families and communities in collaboration, the role of the support worker in observation, documentation, the importance of relationships and self-advocacy, and working as a team member. This is an integrated placement throughout the term.
