I am currently a student in the M.A. program for Speech Language Pathology at the University of Colorado in Boulder. I am completing my last semester in the M.A. program which involves participating in 2 internships including a placement at Assistive Technology Partners. This has been a great learning experience. Through interactions with clients and support from the wonderful staff, I have developed a better understanding as well as a practical working knowledge of augmentative and alternative communication systems. The direct contact I have had with the clients at ATP has helped me to improve my clinical skills and has given me a broader knowledge of communication in relation to assistive technology devices. The SLP staff members who supervised me were very knowledgeable and supportive of my continued learning. This internship has been very rewarding and I am grateful to have had this experience! Thanks to everyone at ATP for making this a wonderful internship!
