Internship and Field Experiences for Individuals who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

Fast Facts

Field experiences, such as internships, practicums, and clinicals, offer students the opportunity to gain the real-world knowledge and skills they need to become gainfully employed. Students who are deaf or hard of hearing have a right to these opportunities and experiences in the same manner as their hearing peers. Such experiences have the most rewarding outcomes when all parties—service providers, placement coordinators and disability services professionals—work together to ensure an accessible placement for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
