Integral to the learning experience at Speech@NYU is the Clinical Practicum and Field Placement Sequence which consists of five semesters. The first two semesters include clinical immersions which allow students to engage in activities that promote opportunities to seamlessly bridge theoretical pedagogy to real-world clinical applications. The last three semesters include field placement experiences. All students will be placed in a school at some point during the five-part sequence and part-time status will transition to a full-time schedule.
Students are assigned a dedicated Placement Specialist, who will collaborate with the NYU Steinhardt Department of Communicative Disorders (CSD) Clinical Field Placement Team to find a field site that meets NYU Steinhardt’s high academic standards.
