Firefly Autism takes interns and practicum students wishing to be supervised in a high quality setting with friendly, knowledgeable staff.  We are seeking interns and practicum students from graduate programs in psychology, special education, and applied behavior analysis, or related studies.  Priority is given to those who are pursuing their BCBA credential.

Each intern or practicum student will receive specialized attention by a BCBA, who meets the BACB requirements to be a supervisor.  Supervision involves both individual and group supervision. Supervision through video teleconferencing, or similar methods,  may be utilized,  if  needed.  Firefly Autism uses a collaborative team of BCBA's with expertise in a variety of areas. Each intern or practicum student will get experience with members of this team, practicing a wide array of behavior analytic principles, giving the student a more thorough and comprehensive understanding of behavior analysis in an applied setting.
