Practicum Sites

First and second year students are assigned to schools in the Western Illinois area schools or special education cooperatives. Students do not have to find their own practicum placements. Student placements will be changed from the first to second year in order to maximize the experiences and training across different sites. Student's commuting and schedule of classes will be considered when making placements.

Although students complete the majority of their practicum work in public school settings, we do have an on-campus Psychoeducational Clinic. The Clinic accepts referrals from parents in cases where a second opinion is warranted. Students work under faculty supervision on these cases.
