Milestones Psychology is excited to offer two child neuropsychology externship positions for the 2019-2020 academic year! Externs in the child track have the opportunity to provide neuropsychological and academic evaluations for children, adolescents and young adults with a variety of concerns including language or learning disorders, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and other conditions that interfere with school functioning including intellectual disabilities, emotional disorders, and nonverbal learning weaknesses. All externs work under the supervision of a team of neuropsychologists and receive training in assessment administration, interpretation, and report writing. The extern will also learn to develop treatment plans based on findings and communicate results to family members, patients, referring professionals, and schools.
This position requires three days (20 hours) per week and begins August 2019 through June 2020. Wednesday is a required day. We require that applicants have at least one year of experience in providing neuropsychological evaluations. All externs participate in an intensive training at the start of the year, biweekly team meetings with special topic speakers and case review, and monthly neuropsychology didactics. Individual supervision is offered on an ongoing basis amounting to at least one hour per week. In addition, externs receive live supervision while administering assessments and during intake and feedback meetings with patients.
We are accepting applications from doctoral students from school, counseling, and clinical psychology programs. Please include the following with your application:
1.) Letter of interest (Please address the letter to Kirsten Sharma, PsyD, Cassie Fromowitz, PhD, and Anny Yang, PhD)
