School psychology students begin internship training
For the 2017-2018 academic year, 13 students from the school psychology program will begin their internship training in late summer.
“School psychology internship training is a year-long experience in which students work in the K-12 public school settings under the supervision of a certified school psychologist employed in the school system,” explained Terry Diamanduros, Ph.D., professor of school psychology. “Interns deliver a variety of school psychological services and must acquire a minimum of 1,200 hours during their internship training.”
While most of the upcoming interns have accepted positions in Georgia, two students will be completing internship requirements in North Carolina and New Jersey.
Students who will begin internship training include: Caitlin Barkley, Katherine Bruce, Morgan Truett Craft, Megan Economos, Jessica Flowers, Dan Haskett, Ikeria Hicks, Charlee Hogan, Julianna Hudson, Jesse Raymond, Kayla Simonds, Cassidy Stine and Brittney Summerville.
The school psychology program at Georgia Southern University is approved by the National Association of School Psychologists. Upon graduating from the program and passing the School Psychology Praxis Exam, students in the program will be eligible to receive the National Certification in School Psychology (NCSP) credential.
