The candidates chosen will need to live in the Omaha vicinity in order to be able to attend activities at the University of Nebraska Medical Center campus.
Preference will be given to adults with disabilities and their parents and family members, but students and other interested individuals are invited to apply.
The goal of the internship is to enhance trainee’s skills and knowledge regarding intellectual and developmental disabilities history, philosophy and practice. It is intended for individuals who seek to increase their involvement in the disability field. This can take many forms.
