Internship Toolkit for Students with Disabilities in Technical Programs

Status: Completed Projects
Year: 2022-2023
This Project was completed in 2022-2023

Students with disabilities can face unique challenges during clinical internships, which are essential components of their programs. The goal of this project was to facilitate the internship experiences of students with disabilities enrolled in Dawson College health-related, social service and community recreational leadership programs. To accomplish this we conducted a literature review, formed an Advisory Board, and interviewed key stakeholders. Based on the information gathered from these sources, we identified a series of recommendations concerning successful techniques and strategies for students with different functional limitations. These recommendations, along with case examples of best practices, were developed and are disseminated as key components of our toolkit.

This project was funded by Entente Canada-Québec (ECQ).
