Placements are pre-arranged by Humber at host agencies on behalf of the student. Placements make up approximately 380 hours of practice learning over the duration of the program.
Field placements position students to integrate theory and practice by working with industry professionals who provide services to children, youth, and adults with diverse abilities/ special needs/ disabilities and their families. Students engage in leadership opportunities within the role of the resource professional and gain insight and understanding as they work as a team member to assess, develop and recommend responsive inclusive plans. Students learn to work closely with inter-professional teams and the community to enhance person-centred practice and facilitate the process of inclusion. Experiences may include a combination of direct and indirect roles working with individuals within community-based and government services; and agencies such as treatment centres, mental health agencies, child care centres, community living associations, elementary and high schools, colleges, and multi-service agencies.
You are the right fit for this program if you have interest in specialized education working with children, youth, and adults with diverse abilities/ special needs/ disabilities and are passionate about making a difference. You understand the importance of maintaining a high level of professionalism, time management and organization and your philosophy supports inclusive practice.
