“My internship at P.G. Chambers School was a valuable part of my student clinical training. My supervisor provided a great balance between providing me with guidance and allowing me the independence to hone my clinical skills, while I gained strong experience in areas such as feeding therapy and augmentative alternative communication. Best of all, as a graduate intern, I was considered not “just a student,” but an integral part of the dedicated team serving the diverse student population at P.G. Chambers [School]. My internship there was without a doubt a rewarding experience, both professionally and personally.”

Lisa Hatala, M.S., CF-SLP Graduate of William Paterson University

“I spent the summer of 2007 as a speech intern at P. G. Chambers School and had a wonderful growing experience. Areas of special learning for me included: apraxia of speech, collaboration between the speech, occupational, and physical therapy departments, assistive communication and technology, auditory processing, and sensory integration. P. G. Chambers [School] is a caring environment where staff have a strong work ethic and are always striving to meet the individual needs of each of their students. I will always appreciate the great experience I had during this internship.”

Patty Keiling, M.S., CF-SLP Graduate of Kean University
